Aero and LogMeIn

I've had the problem on Vista and Win7 of having Aero disabled after a remote LogMeIn session, even after changing themes to an aero theme and rebooting (the only thing that worked was uninstalling and reinstalling LogMeIn). After having no luck searching the LogMeIn community forums, I finally stumbled across a tip from the folks at Windows 7 Forums:
  1. Uncheck the 'Disable wallpaper and user interface effects on the host computer' in the LogMeIn preferences.
  2. Uncheck the 'Use display accelerator' setting in LogMeIn preferences.
  3. Disable the mirror display device in device manager.
That should do the trick! (Note that this will probably significantly reduce the responsiveness).
