hi kaizer1981, and welcome to sevenforums,

it looks like you've run into 'aero snap', a new feature included in windows 7.

it's meant to make it easier for you to manage your desktop.

if you want to turn the feature off, so your desktop behaves more like the vista that you are used to, then take a look at this tutorial: Aero Snap - Turn On or Off
