Windows 7: ALT + TAB Reverts to Windows XP Style

ALT + TAB Reverts to Windows XP Style

I've only recently noticed this, if I do ALT + TAB it will come back as the Windows XP style and it won't be the fancy Windows 7 style. In a previous thread someone stated that if you watch a lot of flash videos it will cause this issue.


Is there anyway I can stop this from happening or is there anything you guys would suggest?

Could be corrupt system files. Try running command prompt as administrator, then typing in
Code:
sfc /scannow
, and press enter. Let it run and post back the results

Upgrade from XP to 7 is not allowed. Did you do a clean install or an upgrade?

I never had Windows XP, I said it looks like the Windows XP alt tab and I did a clean install.
