Aero says it cannot run with program requiring mirroring

This issue started this morning on my Win 7 Pro 64 bit with all current updates. I have restarted the box multiple times, stopped/started related services. No apps are running, I cannot get Aero re-anabled. Same error message repeatedly:

Ok so are you mirroring or have a RAID (more than 1 HD)?

No, my work PC. I believe it's related to mirroring graphic driver, like Citrix GTM.

None other than the one I attached. I took all the updates this morning, then the issue. Also cannot open SQL Studio. I need to rollback I suppose.

Probably fastest way

Or run a system file check

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
Quote:
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

It may need to be run up to three times before successful
Let us know the results from the report at the end.
Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Issue resolved, Dameware mirror driver was hung. My IT uses this for remoting in, somehow it hung. Killed it off, rebooted.

Good news and Dameware is known to cause them.

It always blows my mind when IT departments pay licensing fees for an additional remote access tool when Remote Assistance can be used, it's native to the box, and can be controlled via group policy.
