Windows 7: Cannot right/left click in topbar in Windows 7

Cannot right/left click in topbar in Windows 7

Hi guys,

If somebody can help me, I don't know if anyone has had this issue, but sometimes I cannot click the "back" button or "file" or any other topbar icons either in IE9, chrome, also with office 2010. It is strange as when I restore to a smaller window then it works immediately, but as soon as I maximize it, it doesn't work.

I have asus c90s laptop with win 7 32bit with aero on, I have some customized settings but I still don't know where is this coming from, it happens many times, and sometimes it just restores back to normal, also happens with my itunes, etc... basically any program maximized doesn't left/right click on any part of the topbar only if I restore the window to smaller size. Also it shows that when i try to click on the bar, it just goes transparent like I have chosen something from the back of the window, any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have tried to disable Aero and still the problem persists, the only way to work is with Windows classic theme, but it is too basic for me
