Lately (past few weeks), whenever I play a video game, then quit, Aero doesn't seem to like sticking around anymore!
For example, I was playing something an hour or so ago, and just now when I was writing a comment on a question here, I decided it had no value, and so closed the tab. The JS message box telling me I was closing the tab turned aero off.
I... wait what, Why? So, as usual, I grab a command prompt and type: "Net stop UxSms && Net start UxSms" to restart the dwm, and it pops back up again. However, all is not well, if I switch windows, or open another (in this case an explorer window), bam, I'm back with basic. If I reboot, everything is fine, and aero sticks around whatever I do (until, of course, something like a game turns it off - then we're back to where we started).
Any help? Troubleshooting steps I should take to resolve such issues in the future?
