Enable Aero Effect in Windows Vista and Windows 7 Home Basic
By on January 4th, 2010

Aero was one of the most celebrated additions to Windows Vista. The snazzy new Aero effects brought Windows on par with modern GUIs. Windows 7 further refined Aero and succeeded in delivering an attractive yet intuitive interface. Unfortunately, Aero is disabled in cheaper editions of Windows Vista and 7 (Home Basic and Starter editions). Aero is also locked on lower end systems.

AeroEnabler is a simple utility which unlocks Aero in Home Basic and Starter Editions. It can also be used to disable Windows hardware check. This makes it possible for everyone to get a taste of Aero, without upgrading the hardware or software.

Techie Buzz Verdict

AeroEnabler does what it promises. However, one must be careful while forcefully enabling Aero effects on lower end configurations. The hardware check was included in the first place because, running Aero on systems which aren’t powerful enough, may lead to major performance issues. If your hardware doesn’t satisfy the Windows Display Driver Model specifications, then you would probably be better off without Aero.
