Aero Preview not working properly

Hello Seven Forums!
I have a problem with the Aero Preview feature. With programs like Mozilla Firefox and VLC Media Player, Aero Preview does this:

This is real and I have no clue how to fix it. I tried troubleshooting but it found a bunch of other problems I don't even have. If you don't get what's wrong, it only shows part of the window and it's really annoying and restoring and minimizing don't help.

Thanks.

Are you running any third party theme or window modifiers?

No I am not I keep the vanilla look because I like my PC fast, but preety at the same time. It might be Triple-Core but custom and third-party themes slow it down. I have never put any of those programs in my computer.




P.S.: My computer is 4 months old

I think I found the problem! VLC Media Player does it. In twitter, someone had posted a video that played with the VLC Plugin. Then this started happening to the window. I closed it and now it's OK. I reopened that video and it happened again. Does that help? I guess I will post a thread in VideoLan troubleshooting... If someone knows how to fix this thing with VLC please say so.

Which version of VLC do you have? I found the latest 2.x upgrades to be too intrusive and buggy. I reverted.

You're right! I updated last week or so... It's been buggy since then... I have to revert...
