nvidia 8400GS conflit with Window Desktop Manager win7

i have a stability problem with the nvidia and window desktop manager in windows 7 ultimate. Its a aero or transparecy issue.If i open the microsoft games folder and play spider ( for example) the icon in the taskbar starts moving from one side to the other.Sometimes pages on m ie8 starts flashing aswell. I tried all new drivers even the beta one 196,34 from nvidia and nothing. If i turn off Window Desktop Management Session the problem stops too. But the aero i think is gone by that time. Can someone help.(the clues i have is ...the webcam (zaaapa ac337 drivers, and the stardock object desktop program version 1,90 ). The program reimage repair says its a conflit between nvidia and window desktop manager
