A problem just started the other day that has me puzzled. The Aero effects on my desktop/themes have quit working but only for the Admin user on my desktop. On another account it seems to work OK.
It's currently running Win 7 Home Premium. It had been working fine until now. I installed a new motherboard a few weeks ago with no issue. The only other thing is that I've gotten a quick blip of a message when starting up that says Windows couldn't connect to a service, but it disappears so quickly I can't read all of it.
When I try to apply a new Aero theme all of the options are greyed out.
Here's what I've done so far:
- uninstalled nvidia drivers and updated to latest version
- run the scannow utility (no errors)
- updated my Windows Experience - saw no changes in score
- ran the Aero troubleshooter with no effect
As everything seems to be working ok otherwise I'm just considering this as an annoyance but I'd appreciate any help.
