Did you log out and log back in? – Stanley Williams Jan 14 '11 at 15:52
Adding alternate registry method above... If that doesn't work I'm tapped out. Between the two methods you listed and these two I know no other way. – Stanley Williams Jan 14 '11 at 15:57

I think the question may actually be about Aero Shake not Aero Peek.

Aero Shake is shaking a window to display the desktop. Aero Peek is placing the mouse over the rectangle at the right of the taskbar to display desktop.

To turn off Aero Shake enable the following setting in the Local Group Policy Editor "gpedit.msc".

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Desktop\Turn off Aero Shake window minimizing mouse gesture

Hope this helps.
