Disable Windows Aero quickly (or slowly!)
This is my site Written by Grant on September 14, 2010 – 10:16 pm

I use a mix of UltraVNC and RDP to remotely control client PC’s – machines running Vista/7/2008 with Aero Themes turned on cause VNC’s responses to be delayed by 10 to 30 seconds – it’s unusable.

A quick way to disable Aero themes is to run net stop uxsms as an admin user – when you are done just restart the service before you logoff

If you wanted to do it the long way, right-click the desktop, select Personalise and select a simple non-Aero theme such as “Windows 7 Basic” or “Windows Classic”
