Isn't there a native Win7 function for this? Shake
Perhaps that's not what you're looking for - take a look at Get to know the Windows 7 desktop

Edit: the show desktop button might be what you need - on the right side of the taskbar in Win7

Hmmm, works for me, you did confirm you have the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) ?

Start> In search box type add or remove programs> Enter

Scroll down to Microsoft Visual C++ and see if you have the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x86)

If not (or even if you do) you can download it and install it from the link on the programs site

Download: Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details
