    was going to try this on my 7057 version but i have no DWM ANY IDEAS :confused:
    Code:
    Or for all users together: 
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM
    "HideBlur"=1 (REG_DWORD)
    
    Whereby the user setting has priority. So, if the "milk glass" effect is activated for all users (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE HideBlur=0), nevertheless this one can switched off for individual users to "fully transparent" (HKEY_CURRENT_USER HideBlur=1)

    This effect was also possible in the builds 6956, 7022, 7048 and 7068.
    In the builds 7000, 7077 and 7100 it doesn't work.

    You also can use this function in the build 7100 (RC), when the two files "DWM.exe" and "uDWM.dll" from folder c:\windows\system32\ of Build 7127 are copied in the Build 7100.

    Whereby the file "DWM.exe" is responsible for the evaluation of the registry key ("HideBlur=1") and the file "uDWM.dll" for full transparency.

    In order to overwrite these files at all, you first must acquire the full access rights at these files. Then "stop the service": "Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager" for a short time and copy the files from build 7127 into 7100. After that "restart the service": "Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager" again.

    Yes, of course. You have to edit the registry with "HideBlur" parameter.

    In my tests the registry entry wasn't present and I entered it manually. And I entered it as DWORD - same as the other entries is this registry tree.

    (Just have tested it with QWORD - and this doesn't work.)

    Q =64bit which im running
    D =32bit
    so i backed up the reg keys/and deleted them. i then made them under the DWORD 32bit.
    seems ok now:)........thx for your time unawave

    I don't think that "QWORD =64 bit" has something to do with your operating system (32 bit or 64 bit). That reflects only the possible data length that could be stored in this registry key.

    QWORD is a 64bit key.
