ALT, TAB window suddenly appears...
I am not sure what the window is called... it's the one that pops up when you hit alt tab and allows you to scroll between open top level programs.
The Alt Tab window suddenly appears and scrolls rapidly between all the open programs. I can access the task bar and open more pinned programs, I can launch the task manager but I am unable to close any programs nor do a graceful shutdown of the pc. I have scanned the event viewer and see the errors that resulted from a hard power down but nothing in the log that would point the problem.
There appears to be no particular sequence of open programs that cause the problems, it happens when I am typing in a document, editing an image or simply viewing a web page.
The problem existed before I upgraded to Windows 7 64 from WinVista 32. Frankly it was one of the major reasons I did the upgrade.
Given the subject of this posting... I don't even know the correct nomenclature of the problem.... subsequently my online searches have been futile.
Any info i.e. what do I call the problem... would be greatly appreciated.
