Aero glass disappered RRS feed

  • Question

  • I connected to my computer using Remote Desktop and Netmeeting and, as usual, it disabled Aero Glass.

    Normally, after I have logged off and rebooted Aero Glass re appears.

    This time it has not.

    Is there any way I can get it back?


    This is what I have tried already!!:-


    1.  Right click on the Desktop and select "Personalize".  On the Personalization window that appears, click the option "Window Color and Appearance". The option "Enable Transparency" is not shown


    I cannot see the  "Open classic appearance properties for more color options" or the  "Windows Aero" is selected as the color scheme.


    2. Try changing the display mode back and forth to 32 bit


    3. Tried starting and restating Themes service.


    4. Reclulated Windows Experience Index - which is 3.3 - Desktop experieicne for Aero is 3.6


    5. dxdiag shows no problems.


    5. Turned off Power Options.

  • Here is another setting to check out:

    Right-click Computer > Properties and under Tasks select Advanced System Settings (Continue if UAC is enabled) > Advanced Tab then Settings alongside Performance. The Visual Effects Tab contains a list of Options, are they all ticked? If not, tick them.

  • Perhaps the problem is low bandwidth; are you sure you have a fast enough connection to handle the aero effects?

    Also, did it work before or has this been a problem from day 1?
