    Has anyone had this happen before? I can no longer run any Aero themes. They think they are selected and Windows says there is nothing wrong with Aero but it is impossible to restart it. What I don't understand is after I finished using the program last time it restored previous settings like it was supposed to. When I restarted my computer Aero wouldn't work. I've run the file checker I've run the troubleshoot. Everything is enabled and claims to be working. :(

    I am on a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

    Nothing really of the sort.
    I suppose you tried already to disable aero and re-enable it afterwards. Do you really mean there's no way to re-enable it again? It is very annoying!

    My computer doesn't even know it's disabled. And there's nothing I can do. :(

      If the computer doesn't know it's disabled, it means that it thinks it's enabled, so it should be possible to disable and re-enable it. Did you try this operation?

      start -> Control Panel -> Change Theme
      select a non-AERO theme and then the original AERO theme back
