Exclamation Aero Effect Crash

Hi there, i'm having problems with my Windows Vista, i have windows vista ultimate, my WDM, windows vistas aero effect, keeps crashing. What it does is runs fine for a moment. 30 seconds to 2 minutes then it will say: Windows Desktop manager has stopped working. There is nothing wrong with my hardware setup. I have dual core 2.8ghz, 2gb ddr2 ram, and a Nvidia GeForce 8800 Ultra, so whats the problem?

Any answers would be much appreciated.

Copy-paste the following command in Vista Start Menus Search Box, and hit Enter.

rundll32.exe Dwmapi.dll,DwmEnableComposition

This will re-enable Aero by flushing it.
