I'm new to this forum, and first of all I'd like to say thanks to anyone who can help me out. I just now installed windows 7 using boot camp on a new baseline 15" macbook pro (4mb ram). I installed the drivers using the OS disc and then downloaded the 3.1 boot camp update so I know I'm all updated -- however, none of the aero effects seem to be working. Including the window previews from the taskbar, the "show desktop" on the bottom right corner, and the exit/minimize animations for the windows. I was told that the aero doesn't work before the OS is activated, which I didn't do until a few hours after I got it up and running, but even if that was the case it should have started working after I got it activated. Any ideas?
