I have noticed about avaliablity to disable blur effects for Aero windows. This trick have to works in Windows 7 7127. Also it can works in bluilds BEFORE 7077 and AFTER 7100 but i can't check this.
Quote:
This "frosted glass" effect ("Blur") can be turned off with the program "regedit.exe" at two places in the Registry and leads then to the "fully transparent" effect ("HideBlur"):

For each user individualy:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]
"HideBlur"=1 (REG_DWORD)

Windows 7127 HideBlur Registry

Or for all users together:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]
"HideBlur"=1 (REG_DWORD)

Wow, I really love that. Why doesn't it change the taskbar?

The blur in the taskbar is not DWM related and therefore does not turn off.

The taskbar is obviously DWM related if it is drawn with it. While messing around with the registry keys for dwm in windows 7100 I made the windows very very white (including the taksbar... (fixing now).

Well, for some reason the reg key only gets rid of DWM blur. The taskbar blur is different from DWM blur.

Also, this is for debugging purposes only, because this works in Vista betas as well. So this will not work in 7100 or RTM

It would be more work for someone to upload this as a reg file than for you to copy it to notepad and save as x.reg or do it manually... its 1 key set to 1...
