DF 3.1.6.6 Taskbar active window hilight slow sometimes

Win7 Pro x64 2xmonitors

Occasionally, and infrequently (not reproducible), when I click on a new Window to activate it, the active window hilight lags about one second behind the window becoming active on the DF Taskbar. It doesn't seem to happen on the Win7 taskbar, and I can't seem to replicate when testing.

This lag can be caused by the presence of a fullscreen application, game or video. When DF detects a fullscreen application, it can (optionally) disable the system hooks to improve performance for that application. This causes DF to lag a little bit behind when updating though.

Thanks for the information, but not running any fullscreen applications when this is happening.

Probably indicates some lack of Win7 x64 concurrency somewhere.

The next time the issue happens, could you copy/paste the information from the Troubleshooting tab in the DisplayFusion Settings window here? I'd like to see what apps DisplayFusion thinks is holding it up, and how you have the settings configured so I can try to duplicate it. Thanks!

Also, I'm not sure if you've done this or not yet, but please make sure you update to version 3.1.7 and reboot after the update to make sure the old hooks are fully released and replaced. Thanks!
