Hate to say it, but your best bet would be to kick up your video-processing capabilities if possible. I know it's a pain, but sadly, Microsoft is trying to market products to force us consumers to change everything over and spend lots of money. If you're using a desktop, turn the system off (have to say it in case others look at this with the same question), remove the panel, look at the motherboard first to see if either nVidia or ATI has a chipset on the board. If so, you'll have to use that brand or any other except the other (ATI will not work properly on nVidia boards and vice versa). As I doubt you're a gamer (90 MB of Video Memory isn't a lot), a video card of sufficient power to run Aero shouldn't cost a lot. Also, take note of whether your desktop needs an AGP or a PCI-E type card. I don't remember how they look anymore (haven't dug around in mine for a long time and I don't have PCI-E slots anyway), but you don't want to buy the wrong card, open up the box and the electrostatic bag, go to put it in and be confronted by the evils of not having that slot. Sorry for the long reply and the assumption you are using a Desktop.

Well, unfortunately, I can't help you then. I know as much about laptops as I do about the oceans. In other words, virtually nothing. Though, to force Aero to work, try messing w. your power settings first. Search for something, anything, that might turn off Aero on battery. Had something similar on a friend's Vista where it would shut Aero off while running battery-only.

It does not do nothing,No matter what i change in there it does nothing to the Way everything appears. But if it did open the Other window,Like in the Second Picture i should be able to modify the appearance. I have 90 MB of video Ram By the way.
