Windows 7: Aero Peek does not work?

Aero Peek does not work?

My Aero just stopped working? I did the "Trouble Shooting" and this is what they said: (Which I am looking for what it actually means)

"To allow Aero effects to be displayed, close any programs that use mirror dirvers (a type of display driver), sucha as Windows Remote Assistance and Windows Live Mesh."

Does anyone know what they are talking about?

Thanks.

My best guess is that those programs are interfering with Aero. Do you use any programs to facilitate remote assistance?

Last night I logged into my computer at work using "Logmein.com" I also use Remote Access here to get on my servers. But up to this point Remote access has not been a problem and didn't cause the issue before.

Have you rebooted your computer?

You might have the answer. It is possible that Remote Access is causing the problem.

I ended up restoring Windows to an earlier time yesterday. That seemed to work! One of the things I did install which uninstalled was Windows Live packet?
