If you’re running Pro or higher, you can use Group Policy to disable Aero Shake instead of a Registry edit.
Press the Windows key and enter “gpedit.msc” to launch the Local Group Policy Editor
Navigate to “User Configuration–>Administrative Templates–>Desktop”
Double-click “Turn off Aero Shake window minimizing mouse gesture” and select “Enabled” to disable it.

Has this happened to you? You’re moving around one window, trying to position it just right and all your other windows just minimize? You’re a victim of the Aero Shake minimize.
This seems to get me more often than I’d like. There’s a simple way to disable it via the Registry.
Keep in mind that messing with Registry can cause bad things to happen to your system. Make a backup before you mess around. If you’re uncomfortable, maybe you don’t change this.
The Registry key you need is here:
Set to 0 = Enable
Set to 1 = Disable
This should work on Home and Pro versions.

I was sure I blogged this before, but I can’t find it here.
Occassionally, after disconnecting with TeamViewer, Win7 doesn’t want to reenable Aero Glass. Usually, I just switch themes and it back, but that will also fail to work at times.
Running an admin console using the following commands to get Aero Glass working correctly:
net stop uxsms
net start uxsms

Windows 7 just decided my computer was running slow and turned off Aero for me!?
Not really sure why it would think this, I wasn’t having any troubles and had approximately 8GB of 12GB free on my OC’d i7 920 @ 3.64GHz.
I went into the Personalization and selected an Aero theme and I’m back. Very interesting. I’ve not seen this message in the Beta or RC versions of Win7, both of which I did run on slower systems, or even my Dell Mini 9 with Win7Pro.
