Windows 7: Taskbar stops showing previews

Taskbar stops showing previews

So recently I've been using windows 7 a lot and every so often the task bar stops showing previews and starts showing tool tips and when I move the mouse off of the taskbar the icon remains highlighted as though my mouse were still over it the only way to fix it is to restart explorer.

anyone else ever have this issue and or know of a way to fix it?

Hi Flare561,
I think Windows Aero has to be enabled in order for the previews to show up. Are you turning it off perhaps? My VGA card did not qualify for Aero so I only see the words. Not the previews.
