Windows 7: Has this ever happened to you?

Has this ever happened to you?

On random occasions when I'm browsing the internet or something, if I hover over my active taskbar icons, they don't show previews, they just show the title in a little yellow box. Also, when I hover over inactive icons, the little hover bars will just sit there until I hover across the taskbar onto an active icon. I hope you guys were able to understand all that, lol. But the whole point of this is, has this ever happened to you and did you ever find a fix to keep it from coming back?

Well, I don't know what he did to make it work, he didn't say. I think I do have the same problem though. It'll start working again if I click the icon that I want to see, but it'll stop working every now and then.

Update your GPU drivers - integrated graphics need all the support they can get.

Hello Wii Master,

Do you have a Aero Theme selected?

If you do have a Aero them and this happens again, then double check to make sure that the Themes service is still set to Start and Automatic.

Hope this helps,
