Windows 7: Problem with Taskbar Thumbnails

Problem with Taskbar Thumbnails

Usually the taskbar thumbnails appear just a second after I hover the mouse on it. But now it stuck somehow. The thumbnails do not appear after I hover on it, nothing happens. To make it appears, I have to switch to one or two more windows and then hover back one the taskbar.
I really don't think that it happen to just a specific program...

OK, fair enough, just a suggestion!!!
Have you tinkered with any taskbar registry settings (ie. mousehovertime, peek preview delay etc.)???

Yeah, as i say, i had the same problem but Skype was causing it. Also maybe try and restore those registry settings. (if you can remember which ones you modified )

I maybe have a good solution to your and everyone else's areo or things not working on the taskbar problems. My peek and thumbnails disappeared after I installed vlc player version 1.0.3 I hope this helps some of you (I might make a main thread too)
