Windows 7: ALT+TAB Reverts to XP Version

ALT+TAB Reverts to XP Version

I really like Win7's Alt+Tab switcher, however, it has started to revert back to the XP version. This website shows how the problem can be reproduced, but I am not accidentally using that method. Restarting my computer will reset back to the intended Win7 switcher, and some time later, when I go to use Alt+Tab, it will simply be in the XP version.

Any ideas about what could be causing this? Or even a way to revert back without having to restart? Thanks in advance for any help.

Do you watch a lot of flash movies? I've noticed some odd behavior after watching flash movies on different websites (websites that stream flash videos, like you tube and others).

Interesting, and I was able to reproduce it on my system as well, but I use Win-Tab anyway...much preferred.
