Windows 7: Aero Peek and Screensave not workinig.

02 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Pro, 32-bit

I will give this a try, but I believe I do have the correct driver for this. Everything else works such as flip, glass, etc., but when I hoover over an open task bar item it will only flash it in aero peek for a second if not less than that. All of these features worked for a month then peek started acting up. When I have certain items open on the task bar sometimes it will work, plus the screen saver won't work,

Open an elevated command prompt (Run as administrator) and type in:
sfc /scannow
Corrupt system files could have caused swapping around features that weren't meant to activate when you do an action. e.g. Hovering over a taskbar item displays aero peek.

Here are the results of the scan. I turned off Aero and used a basic theme and I still have problems when I hoover over an open task bar icon, and still no screensaver.
