Hi I'm using Windows 7 64 bit Professional edition.

I've tried disabling aero shake in by:

  1. Adding an entry in registry
  2. Disabling the policy in the policy editor

Yet it just wont go away.

I'm also running the software from "actual multiple monitors", so I suspect that it might be causing problems. However, I can't find a way to disable the setting for it.

I'm wondering how "Aero Shake" works, because I can't consistently reproduce and trigger it, so I can't test whats causing the problem. I've tried shaking windows like crazy, but it doesn't seem to work every time. Is there some specific condition for it to be triggered?

Thanks for any help. disable proof: disable proof

I don't know what happen with your system but take a look here sevenforums.com/tutorials/74845-aero-shake-enable-disable.html to see if you met the requirements. The last thing I can think your system files got corrupted. Good luck –  eamai Mar 27 '13 at 1:38
