Imporving Aero Index Score?
My Aero rating is 3.4. The rest of my ratings are >4. Is this Areo rating
decreasing my overall performance? If so how can I increase the rating?

I believe that as long as your graphics scores are above 3.0, then Aero
offers all that is available to you.

Aero in general is an additional layer of eye candy, so it will ding system
performance on it's own. The rating simply decides that Aero can run without
causing a noticable difference in performance.

The first thing I did was turn off all the unnecessary eye candy, tweak the
services (Black viper's Vista Services Tweaks), shut down indexing, and got
a 5 rating on everything (mid-range computer). It looks like W2K and acts
more like WXP (sigh, I wish). Aero is beautiful at first but gets old
quickly when it slows the system down even slightly. Just my 2 cents worth.
