Enable Aero even if Windows doesn't allow it

Windows Vista has a sweet little new interface called Windows Aero, call it another theme for windows. The problem is that this does not work on every pc configuration, it only works on system that windows finds fit for it to be used on.

Follow these steps and you will be able to re-enable Aero even if Windows doesn't allow it:

  • Click Start, Run.
  • Type regedit
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft
  • Create a key called WDM.
  • Inside of that key, create a new DWORD value called EnableMachineCheck, and set it to 0
  • Create another DWORD called Blur, and set that to 0
  • Create another DWORD called Animations and set that to 0.
  • Restart Your Vista

Enjoy the Aero Experience!
