All windows reduced instantly: What could cause that

Hello

I got an intermittent problem where all my opened windows will be reduce instantly while I drag fast one of them across my screens

My system use 4 monitors driven by two Nvidia graphic card. I don't loss anything because my application are still running in background.

When the problem do occur, all I see is my desktop icon. I need to select every application to put them back on screen

Look like the graphic card can't be fast enough and it triggered to close all window.

Anyone has experience that?

Windows and graphic card drivers are updated.

Martin

Windows 7 has a feature (Aero Shake) that allows you to minimize all other windows if you take one and move it back and forth rapidly. Is that what is happening?

You can disable it by seeing this tutorial.
