  • Hi,

    When the issue occurs, please try the Aero troubleshooter.

    Open Control Panel/Troubleshooting.
    Under Appearance and Personalization, select the Display Aero desktop effects.

    In the Troubleshooter dialog, click the Advanced link and place a check mark in the Apply Repairs Automatically option.

    Click Next to run the troubleshooter.

  • I am having the exact same problem, This is the only other person I've found that has the same problem as I do.

    If I switch user and log back in aero will be disabled and I'll be back on windows 7 basic theme.

    It'll say the the desktop window manager is disabled.

    I have a GTX 670 FTW if that helps.
