    Yes, very carefully checked everything listed. I believe it may be the result of some errant and unknown registry change in the process of tweaking win 7 somewhere along the line. Everything else works perfectly and I even did the aero troubleshooting check and that was clean. I'm going to manually check Desktop Window manager service to ensure it is on auto. I've seen a couple reports like mine, unsolved, so there must be a dependent setting changed somewhere.

    Mpre cases:

    Xgman,

    Doing a Repair install should be able to fix this for you without losing your current settings.

    I did one better, I did an upgrade install to 7077 and now to 7100 and the problem carried over. Whatever did this is not being changed and overwritten on an upgrade. I guess whatever it is windows sees as a user preference and doesn't correct it. Oh well . . . . . I suppose a clean install would fix it, but whatever did this may reappear unless I figure out what did it.

    Not sure what may have caused it to not work for. A clean install with the latest build may solve it for you though. I would wait until tomorrow for the official Windows 7 RC version to be released to the public and install it instead.

    I think I'll live with it till RTM. It's not that big of a problem, but still the cause is driving me nuts and whatever it is I may inadvertently do it again on RTM for all I know unless I carefully check behind each and every thing I install or set. Maybe someone will figure it out. Thanks for your suggestions though.

    You're welcome.

    About the only way to find out for sure is after doing a clean install, check Aero Peak after you install and change any settings that you normally make to see if that was what caused it.

    Brink, not sure if this has been discussed or not.

    I'm running the RC7100 version of W7 on Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and haven't had luck with the "peek" feature either. It's been grayed out, so as of now this feature is not compatible with VPC software. I google looking for answers on a workaround but still no luck.

    Figured I'd let you know maybe you've encountered another story like mine, below is a screen shot of the results when i clicked on Windows Experience Index.

    Sorry, but you will not be able to run the WEI or Aero features in a virtual computer.

    Thanks for confirming Brink.
    I figured it's worth asking anyways :)
