Lost Windows 7 transparency DWM not working properly

After installing new theme from Microsoft (http://windows.microsoft.com/hr-HR/windows/downloads/snowflakes-and-frost-theme) my Windows 7 lost all its transparency (Aero) effects and placed Windows Basic as the actual theme.
I've been googling for my problem for an hour now and I have not found any solutions.
All my attempts to fix this issue have failed.


I've tried running the standard wizard for for fixing transparency problems and I got a response:
Desktop Window Manager is disabled.
The Desktop Window Manager service is running all the time. I can see dwm.exe in the list of active processes. I've tried stop/starting DWM and Themes service to no effect.
I've tried running system restore but it did not solve the problem.
I have Avast antivirus all the time and I have scanned the disk, there are no viruses.
I've installed newest drivers from ATI and this also did not help.


I just don't know what to do any more short of re-installing Windows (and that is something I will not do just to get some fancy transparency effects)

dwm.exe: F12 not working in Delphi debugger on Windows 7/8

Pressing F12 while the program is running in the debugger should break the execution and open the debugger. This works correctly on Windows XP (tested with D2007 and XE2) but fails on Windows 7 and 8 (also tested with D2007 and XE2; tested on three computers).

Registry is set up properly (Windows 7):

dwm.exe: Completely locking down Windows 7 using Python 3.2?

This might be a more difficult question since I don't even know how to do it outside of Python...

I want to write a terminal program that completely locks up my PC until a password is entered. In the locked state no one should be able to do anything outside the terminal. In it, the user may rampage and write silly commands, but he should not be able to switch windows, click outside of it, open the task manager, open the menu with Ctrl + Alt Gr + Del and so on.

dwm.exe: BitmapCache causes WPF application to lock up

Here's the scenario:

1: Our WPF application starts

2: The WPF application loads various user controls, including some that use the new BitmapCache feature in WPF 4

3: Hit ctrl-alt-delete or win+l or load another application which requires UAC

4: Cancel that stuff

The WPF application is now unresponsive, however it's WPF itself which is the problem. All the application logic on all the background threads is fine, and you can interact with it by pressing alt+f4,

dwm.exe: Problem with explorer.exe and dwm.exe in Windows 7 [closed]

I'm using Window 7 Ultimate. I get a problem with two processes, namely explorer.exe and sometimes dwm.exe.

The two processes tend to use cpu between 20-30%.

And it only occurs when i play some game on my PC. My PC works perfect until I play some game.

And another important observation:
They consume no cpu as such but only consumes when I try to refresh my desktop. I mean when I right-click on desktop. It takes seconds for refresh.

I have no virus problems.

dwm.exe: Dwm.exe memory leak when resizing simple WinForm application

I created very simple Winform application in VS2010 (just a standard template File->New->Project->C# Windows Forms Application).

After several form resizes the system memory consumption can increase by 1Gb or more! And this memory is not returned to the system after application closing. Selecting Classic theme or killing dwm.exe helps to get memory back.

Here is the simple video I recorded to show the problem: http://youtu.be/ZJMCayflrHI

dwm.exe: Delphi 7 - Screenshot without capturing form - Windows 8 - DWM.exe

Friends,

Need to screenshot of the all desktop WITHOUT MY FORM and load in TImage.
Success in Windows XP, 7 - with just ALPHABLEND = TRUE + SCREENSHOT PROCEDURE.

But same code does not work in Windows 8 - capture all screen INCLUDING THE FORM.

I know the problem is related to AERO - DWM.EXE - success using pssuspend.exe (sysinternals) - suspending winlogon.exe and killing dwm.exe

Someone could tell me how to capture all desktop without my form also in Windows 8?

dwm.exe: VB6 Drag and Drop Performance in Windows 8

I have a rather large VB6 application that features dragging and dropping controls between sub forms in an MDI application. The problem is the performance is really bad during the drag operation. You can see the element redrawing (slowly) as you drag it.

I first encountered this issue in Windows 7 and after some research concluded that it was a compatibility issue with the Aero interface. I was able to work around it by switching off the Aero effects. Now I am using Windows 8 the problem

dwm.exe: Performance issue when resizing Win32 containing WPF

I am in the process of migrating an existing legacy project. For now we want to use C++/CLI as a bridge between business logic (native C++) and interface (WPF).

Please let me know the computation steps for getting cpu percentage used just like how its displayed in task-bar using power-shell

taskmgr.exe: Access to different versions of taskmgr.exe for analysis

I'm looking to get hold of different versions of taskmgr.exe from different versions of Windows, in order to test a Task Manager addon I'm building. I've managed to get some basic additional functionality into the Win7 version, but I need access to other copies so I can test on those too.

I don't need a copy of the entire OS (otherwise I'd grab the compat VHDs from Microsoft), since my reverse engineering skills are good enough to write static patches without a debugger, so just the actua

winword.exe: Why doesn't WINWORD.EXE quit after Closing the document from Delphi?

I managed to distill one of the underlying issues rooted in my question How to trace _AddRef / _Release calls for OLE Automation objects in the unit below.

I'll answer this answer too, just in case anyone else bumps into this.

The question: with the below code, why doesn't WINWORD.EXE always quit (sometimes it does quit).

The unit can probably be trimmed down even more.

I've made a simple python program that waits for a socket connection to the local ip address over port 20000. When it gets a connection, it pops up a message alert using the win32api.

java.exe: Java.exe access is denied

I have problem with access to java.exe from not parent directory.

Windows Vista Home Premium, JDK 7.

I need to execute java.exe from any directory, but when I try to run it from Command Promt, I get message 'Access is denied'. I configured all related environment variables. Access rights to this file allow me to run it. All folders have read permissions.

If I run it from parent directory, everything is OK.

Does anybody know what's the problem?

I am having a ghost problem. I have included Java in my install package so that I don't have to rely on the user already having Java. The problem is that every now and then the javaw.exe disappears in my package! Upon double-clicking my Desktop-shortcut I get a message saying that it can't find javaw.exe and it asks me if I want to remove the shortcut. I have not been able to confirm it but I think it only happens when the PC is restarted. But not every restart. That is what makes it a ghost pro

What am I doing wrong?

switchboard.exe: Remove never-run call to templated function, get allocation error on run-time

First off, I'm a bit at a loss as to how to ask this question. So I'm going to try throwing lots of information at the problem.

Ok, so, I went to completely redesign my test project for my experimental core library thingy. I use a lot of template shenanigans in the library. When I removed the 'user' code, the tests gave me a memory allocation error. Afte
