Moving Window Issue

Hey,

Out of the blue when I move a window I don't get the nice 'graphic' you would have, I do have aero enabled so I am unsure as to what is going on. Please check my screenshot for a better understanding of my issue.
Thanks

Should be an easy fix. Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System.
In the Left Panel of System Properties, click Advanced and follow the arrows as shown.
