It's not a problem. It's how Windows 7's compatibility 'mechanism' works. It is indeed annoying but it's better than to have Aero making the game crash a lot, which is HELL more annoying.

I currently play GTA San Andreas with mods in my 64-bit Windows 7. After hours of playing and modding the game, I'm used to the whole annoyance, but I'm still hoping Microsoft makes a less annoying less resource hog Aero in the next Windows OS.
