Windows 7: Task Switcher (Alt+tab) problem

Task Switcher (Alt+tab) problem

I constantly get this error recently when alttabbing

It just goes on random. Tried google searches but no help.

Can anybody give tips how to avoid this? (Also before modding my explorer.exe with start orbs this already happened)

Window switcher instead of Alt tab?
I'm thinking of replacing alt tab entirely with the 3-d version. The only downside I see is that you can't use just 1 alt-tab to quickly switch to your last active window. Is there another reason to use the old alt-tab other than personal preference? It is quite a thumb cramper to curl under...
