Windows 7: Taskbar shows background image

Taskbar shows background image

Windows 7 Ultimate x86 RTM
Notice the following mostly on my taskbar. The background image leaks and it looks like it doesn’t refresh properly. If I maximize or minimize a window it seems to fix itself. I seen it mostly on the taskbar but also on other parts of the screen.

I had Windows 7 installed on this computer several times and never seen that issue. It’s a Dell E521 with Intel G965 Integrated video. The main change from before to now is a new monitor. Before I had a crappy CRT monitor and now I have a 20" Compaq Q2009 monitor. Monitor is running at its native resolution of 1600 x 900. I only notice the issue on Windows 7, but not on Windows XP. I checked for both the latest monitor driver and video card driver, any ideas.


Here is a snapshot that I took with my phone.

Disable transparency has help with the issue thank you.

But why i'm getting the issue? Do you think the onboard video can't handle a 1600 x 900 resolution or just some weird driver conflict?

There is no problem at all. No driver problem. No monitor problem. No bug.

That is what Aero looks like. I do not like it either.

The Antman got new glasses last week and doesn't often wear them. This is post not a stupid attack as much as it is a stupid attack.

Wow. I just looked with my new glasses on.

Disregard earlier posts. You may have a driver issue.
