Windows 7: AMD/ATI HD 4600 Series Graffix Card, Aero Dissapeared on its own???

AMD/ATI HD 4600 Series Graffix Card, Aero Dissapeared on its own???

Ok so I just Updated my AMD Graffix Software to the Latest 11.8 Yesterday, and also installed the 11.8 HotFix, everything was working perfect then about an hour ago my Aero just went poof and reverted itself back to non-aero?
  1. When I go to Personalize, and select window color all I get is the window I posted an attachment of.
  2. I went to run/search and Typed Aero and ran the diagnostic tool and it found nothing wrong.
  3. I reinstalled the Graffix Drivers. no luck.
  4. I looked at Universal Theme Patcher, all files remain patched.
  5. Catalist does not report my card is defective. and I just did a benchmark test without any issue.
Does anyone have a clue on a quick fix, or do I need to do a system repair? I would just re-image but I haven't taken an image for a month and their is software I dont want to loose grr

UPDATE..Ok so I restarted my machine, pressed F8, and did a simple system Restore I had from yesterday and walla Problem Fixed for now, I hope it is for good? I am still wondering what caused this issue though?

at least I did not have to do a system repair, and loose my 7tsp patched theme files.

Time to Image ASAP, but so much clutter to get rid of first....blaaa

Who knows maby someone will get somthing from this thread?
