Window refresh after ctrl-alt-delete

I am developing an application (win32 native api, C C++) with a bitmap background and edit boxes, buttons, treeviews etc.  The default background of all such widgets is white, and the bitmap background is black.  The problem I am having is, for example, with the treeview, when I hit ctrl-alt-delete for task manager, then cancel out, the treeview does not repaint the background.  I first noticed this when I stepped away from the app and the screen saver came up.

Under all other circumstances, the application refreshes itself.  How does one guarantee a repaint under these circumstances?

Thanks.  I simply added "| WS_CLIPSIBLINGS | WS_CLIPCHILDREN "to my Createwindow statement and the problem went away...
