Windows 7: Aero randomly starting up

Aero randomly starting up

Hi guys,

One of our staff members has been getting the Aero screen popping up at what seems to be random times.
The machine is a Sony VAIO all in one touch screen and the only way to clear the Aero cascade is to touch the screen, tapping the keyboard or moving the mouse does nothing to clear it.
There is no screen savers on nor any themes.
Has anyone come across this before?

Sean

Hello Sean,

Is this below what is displaying?



If so, it could be from pressing a mouse button that's set to open "Switch Between Windows" (Flip 3D).

Flip 3D - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Shawn,

I've used the group policy method to tackle this one. I was a bit slack and did it for the group the user is a part of and not the individual computer.
Thanks for the help.
