Contents of window not visible when moving it

As stated in the thread title, whenever I attempt to reposition a window, the contents of the window (except its borders) are not visible on the screen until I finish moving it. I looked around in the Windows Control Panel but couldnt find anything related to moving windows. Can you guys help me please?

Check that the setting highlighted, Show window contents while dragging, is enabled (ticked) as shown above. Click OK twice to close the dialogue panels.

Wow, I actually checked that window, the option was ticked and I was only looking at the unticked boxes so I didnt notice it. I unticked it then ticked it again, saved the changes and everythings working fine now. Thanks!

You're welcome. Sometimes an option doesn't work for some unknown reason even if it is enabled (ticked). One way of resetting it is to uncheck and then recheck the option. This corrects the information in the registry.
