Windows 7: Dragging title-bar of window moves border separately

Dragging title-bar of window moves border separately

When I click and drag on the title-bar of a window the window border moves to the new location then when I release the mouse the window springs into the re-located border.

This has only started to happen after I changed the partition size of my c: drive. Obviously, some setting has been changed and I have no idea as to how to reset it.

Can anyone shed any light on my problem?

Thanks.

Thanks for the link.

What was interesting was that the "Show windows contents while dragging" box was checked however I unchecked it, clicked apply, then rechecked the box, clicked apply and all was well again. Obviously, something in the registry had been screwed up during the repartitioning.

Did you make the partition larger or smaller? In either case did you change the start position of the partition on the disk? OS are always touchy about the start position. It's a good idea to make an image backup even if it seems like a simple partition operation.

What partition software did you use?
Anything written before Vista is super dangerous. And a lot of stuff that's supposed to be Vista/Windows 7 compliant doesn't work flawlessly.

Last question, if you made the partition smaller did you defrag first?

The OP said the problem started after altering partitions.

So asked what was done. Seems like the right thread to me.

One HDD, two partitions (C: for OS and apps, D: for data). Reduced D: by 50GB to get unallocated space between C: and D: using EaseUs. Tried to use EaseUs to increase size of C: by 50GB but failed (EaseUs got into some sort of loop and had to abort it). Then used 'Windows Disk Management' successfully to extend size of C:.

Did not defrag D: before making it smaller.

Had made an image backup of C: and backed up all data on D: before starting the partitioning exercise.

I like Easus ToDo Backup, but I've seen some people getting side-effects using their partition tools. I would use Partition Wizard iso to burn a boot CD.

I think where Easus got the error is where the problem was introduced. There's no real way to know what's what. It may be a pita but the sure way to go may be to go back to square one. Then try the partition operations with PW boot CD.

At this point you probably have nothing to lose trying system file repair:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

But if that doesn't work I think I'd restore the system image. If the restore program lets you also restore MBR I would do that. Could save you the operation of restoring partitions to the old setup. Once stuff seems to be working normally I would boot the PW CD and perform the resize operations with it.
