That is most definitely not a Windows feature. What 3rd party shell components/software have you installed? That would be where you turn it off .

As already mentioned by Cluberti, this is not a feature that comes bundled with Windows 7. I would strongly suggest that you download and run a FULL scan with Malwarebytes -Malware Scanner. You can get the free version at the link I have provided below. Make sure you run the UPDATE tab before you start the scan.
Let us know how you make out.
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.50.1 - FileHippo.com

It has to be something because Windows does not have that feature look for something like CubeDesktop, DeskSpace, YODM 3D, Desktop to turn off.
It looks similar to Compiz in linux are you using linux?

I think Bongo has nailed it. If you Google CubeDesktop or DeskSpace for will actually find videos showing this exact product. Somehow it is INSTALLED on your system. You can go into ADD/REMOVE programs and completely uninstall it if you do not want it.
