Windows 7: Aero effects turning off on log off/restart

Aero effects turning off on log off/restart

For the past week or so, my Aero effects (just the minimizing/opening window effect) keep resetting to "off" whenever I log on or restart my computer.

Here are the settings after restarting:

I can check the 2 unchecked boxed, click OK, and the effects will start to work.

Here are the settings after logging off and back on:

Even though the 2 culprit checkboxes are checked, the effects are not working.

Any ideas? I can't think of anything new that I've installed that would do this. In fact, I haven't installed a new program in months.

Didn't work. I'm not having problems with it turning off while it's already on, and Aero itself works. It's just the actual minimizing/opening effects that keep turning off after I log off/on or restart.
