Re-enabling Aero (transparency) in Vista Ultimate

HELP! I had Vista Ultimate running well with Aero enabled. I turned off
Aero and now it is not listed in the Appearance window anymore. How do I
re-enable Windows Aero now that I have turned it off? Now it only lists a
few high contrast options, windows standard and windows classic. I just
installed Windows dream scene for the video desktop background and it will
not work without Aero enabled. (I thought that I would free up memory by
turning Aero off, but Vista allocates 25MB for it anyway)

Try opening an elevated command prompt (start->accessories right click on command prompt and run as admin) then enter: [SIZE=-1]net start uxsms

See if that helps or thows up an error.

I got it! You have to right click the desktop. Click Properties. Click on
Themes. Choose Windows Vista from the populated drop down menu. Go back to
the Personalization window (or right click desktop again...) Click Windows
color and appearance. check on transparency box and VIOLA you have Windows
Aero all over again. YIPPEE YAHOO
