I bought a new rig right before Christmas sometime, and when I got a reasonable deal on windows 7 64-bit I went for it. So far I'm very happy with Windows 7 and the Aero "software" (or whatever I should call it) is looking sweet! Anyways, I have noticed when I launch certain games or programs Aero shuts down and changes my desktop theme to windows 7 basic color. And that is all fine cause when I'm in-game it really doesnt matter how my desktop looks. But today when I turned on my computer Aero was already off and basic color had replaced it as if I had launched a game that usually turns Aero off. An example of a game that usually does this is BC2. Never the less, I found out what caused Aero to turn off. It seems Steam is interfering with Aero the same way BC2 does when I launch it. But what is strange is that I've had Aero and Steam on the computer since I bought it and this has never happened before. So I think its weird Steam suddenly ain't compatible with Aero anymore.
Sooooo, if anyone got any solutions to this issue of mine I would greatly appreciate it if you would share them with me. Thanks in advance!
