Visual Effects Keep Randomly Turning Themselves Back On! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been having a problem with the visual effects in Windows 7 Pro.....

    In the system performance options i have the visual effect 'Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing' switched off, however after a random amount of time it switches this effect back on! It has happened about 4 times today and i have no idea why!!

    Any ideas to why this is happening and does anyone have any solutions?

  • I can't say why the effects might be coming back on for you, but I can offer you something to try:

    When you make the changes, immediately log out of Windows so that the changes get stored on disk in your User profile.

    See if, after logging back in, the reversion of the settings occurs again.
