The "Add:" 2 posts up was what the troubleshooter told me.

Add: Not only does it say that ALL of my themes (Including the default ones that came with windows 7) don't support aero. It also says that the Desktop Window Manager is disabled when it is currently running. Troubleshooter even said it enabled it. The following time that I ran the troubleshooter it said the same thing.

Somewhere I recall reading a problem with Areo if your screen resolutions are different on the dual monitors.

Quote Your Specs: Screen Resolution 1280 x 1024 and 1024 x 768.

Try setting them both to the same resolution and see if that fixes it. If that does not you might want to try only one monitor and then the other (in other words one at a time by itself no dual mode)

Let us know.

Thanks for the advice but I changed it to the same resolution. I also unhooked the second monitor. Still, even after running the troubleshooter and changing themes it still didn't work. I am still running the latest nvidia drivers.

Try update your computer's performance score

1, Open Performance Information and Tools by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Performance Information and Tools
2, Click Update my score.

I too also did that. I updated it before I posted this thread when I was looking through my visual settings I noticed performance score and I noticed video card was low. So I updated it and it updated my score. Although, it seems microsoft isn't displaying the full power of scsi hard drives. My hard drive score is rather low. :\

Here is a long shot:

I did this on my Vista machine when I had all kinds of Video Problems.

1) Uninstall the nVidia drivers. Reboot let the Windows Drivers take over.
2) Remove the Video Card Hardware from Device Manager and before Windows can re-discover it. Turn off your machine.
3) Pull the video card out of the machine.
4) If you have a different video card put it in or a built in video card Power Up the machine. Let the machine discover the video and then shutdown (Power OFF) the machine and put your nVidia card back in.
5) If you don't have a spare video card or a built in one. Pull the cord power from the power supply and wait 60 seconds put the video card back. Pug in the power cord and power the machine up.
6) Re-install the nVidia drivers.
7) Disable the nVidia Service this causes all kinds of problems.

I had to do this and it fixed all kinds of video issues.
