Probably myth..
yes, that does the 3D effect I know about that one. I know the difference between 3D effects and 2D. Sorry if that was directed towards someone else.

So,
Does 3d Flip work? (win button+TAB)

I am asking this because if it's working it will explain that ALT+TAB problem is most probably not caused by Aero or other visual settings and compatibility.
Don't get offended.

however you want to say it, this combination does the 3D flip.

Try this: press alt + tab, now press the right alt key while still holding the left alt key. The alt + tab menu will go away. Release the right alt key but keep holding the left alt key and press tab. This would normally turn the alt + tab menu into classic but seeing as it's already classic, it might revert it back to aero.
