    Hello, like the title says I'm having a problem with the Windows (7) theme being automatically switched to basic from Aero when I start recording video from the desktop using the AfterBurner hotkey.
    Does anybody know what could be causing this, and how to fix it?

    This is mentioned in the readme and normal behavior.

    Okay, thank you. So it doesn't affect Windows 10, right?

    Desktop capture under Win8 and newer OSes use desktop duplication interface and do not disable Aero when recording via MSI AB.
