Since then, display on my internet explorer and some folders look really weird.
Just to give you guys an idea, if i go on a google or hotmail, every tabs are surrounded by the box with thick line and the colors of the texts are blue or green where it is supposed to be black.

I tried chaning the display theme on personalization tab under control panel and that did not fix it. I am clueless.
This is starting to really bothering me a lottttt because I just bought a new laptop and this thing is making things look so funky.

does anyone have a solution to this?

7 Taskbar Tweaker is the most useful tool for those who want to disable taskbar thumbnail previews. I didn't know anything about 7 Taskbar Tweaker, thanks for the tip.

I tried Method One but there's no Disable Thumbnail check box. See screenshot below.

I also tried Method Two. I used the registry editor utility. I don't know what it did but it didn't prevent the thumbnails from popping up.

Option Three appears to be a manual version of Option Two.

So after the first three options didn't work I gave up.

I think that's working. Thank you very much. I considered trying that but since it wasn't as described I thought better of it.

Will it continue to work if I uninstall 7+ or must I leave it installed?
