Windows 7: Is it possible to toggle aero within a theme?

Is it possible to toggle aero within a theme?

Just asking due to the sheer amount of junk it would require modifying to get back to the same point otherwise (shrinking the giant icon spacings, removing border padding, etc)

I'm asking like is it possible to enable/disable areo without switching themes,as every default theme has terrible settings.
Only needing to enable aero due to a form of v-sync it does, outside of that I prefer not having aero on.

Solved: turned out the issue came from some customization to what loads on startup because a lot of the startup background stuff has proven useless, forget what it was but switching a disabled to a manual allowed for running:

@echo off
sc interrogate uxsms | find "1062"
if %errorlevel%==0 goto :sc_start
sc stop uxsms

sc start uxsms

As it wasn't aero that I was finding annoying but aero glass.

Anyway taht stupidity of mine is resolved so yay.

Quick Aero toggle (shortcut?)
I sometimes want to turn aero off quickly for a short period of time (e.g. when runing 3dsmax 64bit, the "disable desktop composition" in compatibility options is grayed out) and the method for vista (rundll32.exe dwmApi #102) doesn't work. Any ideas?

Toggle aero
I think I read somewhere, that there is a shortcut for toggling Aero on/off. But I can't fint it again :-) In my memory it was CTRL-ALT-F9, but that doesn't work after installing build 7077. Anyone has this?
