    I am running Windows 7 x64 fully updated.

    I disabled Taskbar Thumbnails from gpedit.msc then rebooted but that didn't do any help, I still see the preview of the Windows when I hover my mouse over it.

    I also tried the registry trick but it was already set to value = 1

    This is the guide I used:

    http://www.mydigitallife.net/disabl...ail-preview-in-windows-7-switch-to-list-view/

    Any help please?

    I know I can simply revert to a basic theme rather than the Aero Theme but I would like to know how to fix this as I have other themes that I use sometimes and with them also the taskbar thumbnail preview is turned on :(

    thanks

    awesome utility man! I love the tweaks it has, but it seems that it has to always be running in the tray otherwise the default settings are restored :(

    ahh I noticed in the FAQ that it has to be running as it only injects the settings into the DLLs of Explorer.exe and not through registry entries

    oh well, ill just keep it hidden in the taskbar then

    Because there are no such registry entries, at least not for everything. Yes, you can it run without icon.

    Thanks a lot man! you dont know how much that preview bothered me, i had to disable Aero or live with it!

    I also love the tweak where you can remove the useless space betwen the icons now my taskbar looks much cleaner!
