  • I don't see that behavior. You probably use a device driver for video that needs improvement for 7.

  • I got the same problem. After I rebooted my computer, the problem disappeared for a while but returned back. I use a HP pavilion laptop.

  • I see this behaviour 100% of the time on RC clean install, 2 different machines. It's not a video driver issue (in my opinion) because the focus remains on the icon too -- I get a screentip right on schedule even though my mouse has moved somewhere else. The highlight or glow is consistent and appears to behave correctly except that the exit from the taskbar doesn't register.

    If any w7 team members on here, is this known and fixed for RTM?

  • Killing the explorer.exe process and restarting it made this disappear for me, but I believe it is temporary. I'll report in if I figure out the cause.
