Windows 7: Aero peek mouse-over thumbnails are flickering

Windows 7
Aero peek mouse-over thumbnails are flickering

So here is my issue: my aero peek thumbnails don't stay up, as I move my mouse over the active icon, it shows and then disappears. It flickers as my mouse moves across the icon.

But when I click the explorer bar itself and then mouse over my active icon, it *will* show.

I've tried to research it myself, updating my 9800gtx+ driver, running aero peek repair, and even windows Repair Install. It must be a registry thing, because I've done everything else.

Thumbnail Flicker Solved (for me)

I posted this a while back...still working more issues.

Believe me...I tried everything I could for over a month...dual booting into XP and installing original motherboard drivers for the chipsets was the only solution for me.

Good luck.... click below for original post

The option is greyed out. I had it working before I formated my SSD and reinstalled windows on it. Should I reinstall windows again and see if that helps it?
