    I have Vista Business Premium -> upgraded from Windows XP Pro SP2 (not clean
    install)...every morning when I boot my laptop, Aero is disabled. First of
    all, I own a genuine copy of the OS, not a pirated copy that has been
    validated as genuine and activated.

    When I boot once a the morning Aero is disabled...I cannot even
    select it in the personalization control panel. In order to get Aero to work
    and appear in the personalization control panel I have to do the following:

    Restart DWM by opening a command prompt with administrative privileges :
    - Type 'net stop uxsms'
    - Then 'net start uxsms'

    Once I restart DWM, Aero is re-enabled and working the rest of the
    day...even if I reboot the system. It only seems to disable itself in the
    morning during the first boot of the day.

    Why is this there a problem with my current installation or
    is this a bug that Microsoft will address in the near future. Judging by
    some of the comments here, I think that this issue seems be pervasive...but I
    could be wrong. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    It could simply be down to the video card being borderline Aero compatible.
