Positioning Windows Desktop Query

I recently upgraded to windows HP 64bit and have come across a strange problem - i cant move windows open on my desktop off the top of the screen, i can move them off the bottom or either side (so there half visable) but if i try and position them a little off the top of the desktop they just get moved back down, or resized very large - i never had this problem with vista? i have included a diagram below:

hi kaizer1981, and welcome to sevenforums,

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

Windows positioning
This might be a question that's already discussed a lot, somehow I can't find a proper solution. Question: can I force Windows to open certain applications where I want them and keep my preferred window size as well? At the moment, this is a "per application" issue. Windows Explorer will...
