Not sure where to ask for help, or have an idea what is happening.


This is a rare issue, I've experienced this 4 or 5 times in the last year.  I'll be at the computer, either watching YT, browsing, or playing video games .. and Windows Aero turns off.  It stays off for a minute or so, and comes back on.  It's kinda like if someone/something is RDC, but my desktop BG images stay.


I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware subscription, I use Panda Free AV, I use Chromium with many privacy & security type addons.

Aero will occasionally shut off if you are streaming or playing media content, particularly content that is not compatible. Or, the graphics driver is old or faulty.
