This is driving me mad. I know about the properties of the games .exe Disable Desktop Composition to have aero disable immediately launching a game. This is unchecked. After I launch a game, start to play, the game freezes for a moment, windows 7 disables aero, then the game is fine. How can I disable or stop Windows 7 from disabling aero while gaming period. I have a powerful enough system that aero does not need to be disabled while gaming. Running two monitors extended. #1 for gaming etc, #2 for gadgets and system monitoring while gaming. Is there a registry edit I could create or modify to make windows 7 stop doing this?
