if i knock the mouse occasionally the page on screen disappears apart from a thin black frame and all i see is the desktop, once i move the mouse the screen reappears.

its a bit of a pain is this an intended function of w7 that i can disable?

On the bottom right of notification area right click the vertical rectangle and untick 'peek at desktop'.

I also fell foul of this but decided to keep it as it can come in useful to have a look on your desktop for something without having to minimise or close a window to reveal it.
