Windows 7: Aero Peek will not turn off

Rosa,

No that registry entry is not the issue. It is pefectly normal for that option in Taskbar properties to be grayed out like that when you have aero peek disabled using the method in either OPTION THREE or OPTION FOUR in the tutorial.

I thought that you has aero peek disabled after uninstalling Aulogics Speedboost. I'm not sure why you tried to disabled it again. Go through each option in the tutorial again to make sure each one is set to disable aero peek to see if that may help.

The option was grayed out before I disabled it. The gray-out previously showed it checked as active. That was the first place I went to disable it, but wasn't able to.

After I uninstalled auslogics Speedboost, I kept searching for a reason why that option was grayed-out, and since I had uninstalled speedboost, I also had to re-tweak some of the changes I wanted to make, such as no transparency, etc., so I did it manually. When I clicked on themes, AeroPeek reappeared, so I was back to square one, even though it was disabled.

I've attached the settings for visual effects. I've reset this every way to Sunday but I can't seem to get rid of AeroPeek again.

It appears that you may have set it using some other option possibly one in Speedboost. If you have a restore point available, then doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this issue may be able to undo it so that you may be able to disable it afterwards.
