Windows 7 feature interfering with game (Max Payne 3) :(

I am playing max payne 3 and sometimes during the game when I move my mouse rapidly a grey box pops up with the title of the windows or "Max Payne 3". I want to disable this window feature!

I attached the picture of what happens when you rapidly shake your mouse. So please look at that attached picture so you know what I am talking about.

So basically when I shake my mouse it lets me select what window to choose, and I want to know what this windows feature is called and how to disable it. I can't find any information about this on the internet!!!

Ok, I figured it out. It was NOT a windows or windows 7 issue. It was my logitech mouse settings. I must have beet hitting the switch application button by accident on my mouse. So, I disabled that button or function, and it stopped. I noticed that on two other windows 7 pc's, it does not do that.

I notice you have an HP toolbar which likely snuck in with some HP hardware driver you installed since you don't have a bloated HP preinstall.

Tech enthusiasts need to be on guard for these destabilizing Add-ons sneaking into the browser as Add-Ons or Control Panel as installed programs. Just one of these can destablize a browser, and an accumulation will dull performance to below the Win7 instantaneous, never-hangs standard on adequate hardware.

Even if you don't have factory preinstalled Win7 these steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware
and Optimize Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums (especially editing Visual effects of fading, sliding, dragging intact, animations and selection rectangle) will assure optimal performance as long as you have a good install to begin with. If not follow these same steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

See what happens when you come to to Win7 home on the web wearing an HP toolbar?
