I have Vista Home Premium and I am wanting to enable Desktop Windows Manager. I would like to display Aero desktop effects such as transparency.

Can you please tell me how I can find Desktop Windows Manager and how I can enable it.
Once again I am asking for your help and am grateful for any suggestions.

Many thanks.
