Windows 7: Aero "Live Preview" Thumbnail Problem

Aero "Live Preview" Thumbnail Problem

For whatever reason when I hover my mouse over the programs in the taskbar the "live preview" thumbnail that comes up disappears almost instantly. It is supposed to show a thumbnail preview for as long as I hover the mouse there with the option to click it for full screen, close it, or move mouse away so it disappears?

I can't seem to find this problem/solution online or in any of the settings available..
