I have Windows 7 Ultimate. WEI scores:

  • Proc: 7.4
  • RAM: 7.4
  • Graphics: 6.8
  • Gaming Graphics: 6.8
  • HDD: 5.9

AMD 1055T 6-core CPU, generally stays pretty low. 16GB XMS3 DDR RAM, which hovers around 5-8GB used most of the time. Three ATI Radeon HD4670 video cards plus onboard HDMI (at 512MB shared). Everything seems fine.

However, some programs (Notably GoToMeeting and MaxiVista) turn off the Aero Glass functionality. It's still enabled, as in the computer knows it can do it; but it's turned off while these programs are running. How can I force Windows to turn it back on and override the settings from these programs?

I'm also a programmer, so if it involves poking around in the Win32 API, or the Windows Internal Database, etc., that is not out of the question. Thanks.

I've also been trying to figure this out never thought to ask though, by the way great you tube videos and your rig is amazing.

As long as it's enabled but just turned off, killing DWM resets the window manager and restores Aero. It does not, however, prevent a recurrence.
