From what I see, your laptop has a discrete videocard, which is not from Intel. So I think you should look to solve your problems to MSI, because they are the manufacturers.
Sure you can try latest driver from nvidia for GeForce GTX 960M
Yes it have a video card, but I've seen that Explorer is always using the integrated graphics. The GTX is working absolutely well in programs like Photoshop or during Benchmarks (i've done some with Heaven Benchmark).
In the Nvidia Configuration Panel, I can change parameters for the programs, I can tell a program to use the integrated graphics or the GTX. BUT it doesn't work for Explorer, the setting is locked at "integrated graphics". That would be ok if the chipset was powerful enough to run Aero, but it doesn't seem like it is.
That's why I'm looking to Intel's side. The problem is quite hard to define, I don't know if the GTX is supposed to run Aero or to help the integrated graphics when they're not sufficient, or if the problem only comes from the Intel chipset. The GTX doesn't have any activity (I'm watching it with MSI Afterburner) while running Aero.
Intel driver has some issues at the moment, they are working at a new driver. There is temporary beta driver Download Intel® Beta Graphics Driver for Windows* 7/8.1/10 [15.40]
Also you can go to bios and disable the Intel igpu.
I'll give a try to that beta driver.
Unfortunately I don't have any option in the bios to deactivate the Intel chipset. Strange thing too is that when Aero stop working, the processor activity is not even up to 20% of its capacities..
In task manager you see only the CPU performance, Aero uses the igpu which is different from the CPU.
I installed the beta driver 30min ago, and I just got the window asking me to deactivate Aero because performances were bad...
I don't know what to tell you. I have an i7-6700k and aero is working just fine, I play games and i don't have discrete graphic card yet.
Go to Internet Options / Advanced tab and enable 64-bit processes for Enhanced Protected Mode. This is a temporary solution, if it works for you till new drivers will be released.
And that Laptop came with windows 10 for a reason. Microsoft will stop support for windows 7, and encourages people to go on windows 10.
Also Intel drivers are more optimized for windows 10, so if that Laptop came with windows 10 I advise you to go with windows 10.
I'll try this later. Doesn't it only apply to Internet Explorer?
I feel really comfortable with Windows 7 and I don't like Windows 10, that's why I keep using 7. No matters if Microsoft tries to force me to go with Windows 10, that's not what I want. It would be great if somebody from Intel could tell me something about my problem..
Internet explorer's files are used in file browsing also ... if u didn't noticed after you make that modification it tells you to restart pc.
Alright, I didn't know that. I don't have access to my computer until tonight so I'll keep you updated since I've done that modification ! Thank you for your time.

Thank you for contacting the Intel Communities.
I recommend you to install the drivers provided by your OEM directly: https://www.msi.com/Laptop/support/PE70-6QE.html#down-driver&Win7 64
Have you tested the behavior of your system with the driver version: 220.127.116.1180?
I look forward to your outcome with the drivers advised and the workaround given by Ronin.
I reintalled the chipset driver from MSI website. I also tried to install the "Intel VGA" driver from there, but it says that I already have a more recent one. Also, when I first installed Windows 7, I took all of the drivers from MSI website, and it didn't work better than now.
I also downloaded the 4380 and it also tells me that I have a more recent version. That's because, following the advice from Ronin I installed the Beta.
I'll keep you updated.
Thank you for giving me a bit of your time !
You can uninstall the one that is on your laptop and install other.
I decided to update Windows 7, so I installed all the "important updates". Nothing has changed regarding my problem, even with the last drivers and the system updated, the laptop is still unable to run Aero.
I looked for the setting you asked me to change sooner, the "Enable 64-bit processes for Enhanced Protected Mode" in Internet Explorer settings, but I can't find it. It's not in the "Advanced" tab.
Any more suggestions? :/
