W7 - display "painting" - how to undo the slightly distorted/offset "fade-in" effect

I use Windows 7 remotely quite a bit, and each display screenful is sent for remote viewing.

The remote computer has a setting in W7 somewhere that i want to change/disable.
For every dialog box interaction (PRINT, for instance)  It paints an interim, faux motion/fade-in intermediate dialog box that is distorted somewhat trapezoidally and then re-paints the display with the static, correctly-sized rectangular  dialog box.

How can i disable this interim "fancy" display effect (perhaps it's trying to mimic apple?) so that i don't have to wait for two screen refreshes for each dialog window pop up or box dismissal.

Use a non aero background, or in your Remote Desktop Connection utility where you enter the remote PC's IP, click on "Options" so all options are displayed, then in the "Experience" tab disable "Desktop Composition" (maybe also change some of the other settings there, like "Menu and Window Animation" etc).

System Properties/Advanced system settings/Performance settings   should help you in taming some glitz.
