Unfortunately, like many others the Anniversary Update completely broke Aero Glass (constant display driver crashes causing the screen to flicker, ctrl+alt+delete opening up a blank grey screen that I can't get out of, a random black screen eventually appearing over my desktop that I can't get out of, artifacts where the top border of a window used to be transparent, etc) so I decided to uninstall it until we get an update. I uninstalled it which immediately fixed the display issues, reverted to an earlier build, and reinstalled the Anniversary Update. Everything seems ok, but I'm just curious, is simply uninstalling it from the control panel enough? From what I understand, this software deeply imbeds itself into the OS, so I just want to make sure so I don't have any problems with future updates with Windows, or Aero Glass.

You just have to remove everything from installation directory and delete “Aero Glass” task if it's still present in Task Scheduler. That's all unless you modified something in Windows Registry Editor in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows.

Thank you! That task was still there. As for the Registry Editor, I don't recall if I modified something there but I don't see anything related to Aero Glass. What should I look for? And is there anything from the Aero Glass folder I should hold on to, like my donation.key?

Make sure that AppInit_DLLs is empty and LoadAppInit_DLLs is set to 0 (0x000000...). As you aren't keeping Aero Glass any more you don't need to leave anything although it's a good idea to move donation.key somewhere else so in the future you don't have to search for it.

WindowsBlinds or not, all I mean, I love AeroGlass bigmuscle but the current concern and I do not, then I have but I do not keep them,
WindowsBlinds well for Windows 7.8.8.1 but not for 10 more and it paid so I told myself to put WindowsBlinds could probably help bigmuscle find the solution, excuse me I translated with google .I does not WindowsBlinds to compete for plus it n and not the same.

Oh wow, I didn't see this on my first glance. AppInit_DLLs has the value "C:\AEROGL~1\ModernFrame.dll" so I just delete that part? Thinking back I'm sure I never tinkered with my registry for Aero Glass. I'm not sure why this is there and why uninstalling didn't get rid of it. Well nothing to worry about I guess.

I just noticed the Experimental Builds topic was locked... I wonder if BM's getting sick of people hounding him about a new build.

It means that this key was changed by the installer automatically because when installing you chose that you want to have glass enabled on frames of modern apps too.

New 1.5.  Why is my Title bar opaque on Windows Update but not when I open software etc.?

I'm not commenting on the above -- I just have to say, I love your signature! :thumbup

When did you see that choice?  I didn't see any such window come up.

I'm not sure about the installer now as I haven't installed Aero Glass in quite a while but installation window used to contain the option marked in the screenshot attached to this message.

I didn't see any window like that, that I recall.   Maybe Big Muscle removed it.   Thanks for the info anyway though.  :D
