Hi myym :)

The Aero Glass theme/mode is gone in Windows 8, it doesn't exist anymore. You can only "use" it if you install a tweak (patcher) basically. So what is that you want to get rid of exactly? Perhaps showing us a screenshot of your "issue" could help us understand?

Thanks for the help Aura.

I actually had to optimize the pc as it gave a black screen and could not see anything, now it is running again and since then aero is disabled and everything is back in to normal.
