Windows 7: Tab title flickers on window resize

Tab title flickers on window resize

Hi,

Just reinstalled Windows 7 x64 (no SP1) and I noticed a weird problem. It happens everywhere, but I can best explain it with Task Manager. If you have Task Manager open and you try to resize the window with your mouse, the top tabs (Applications, Processes, Services etc.) flicker.

I have "show windows contents while dragging" enabled. I have Windows classic theme, but I asked a friend with the default Windows 7 theme and he has the same problem.

I don't remember having this problem before re-installing Windows 7 and I have the same chipset/video drivers.

What could be the problem?

Hope you can help... thanx!

Why do you not have SP1 installed. It is way overdue and would likely affect performance, security and stability. It isn't even Win7 without it. Like an engine overhaul, it becomes the engine.

greg, SP1 has nothing to do with it.

I don't like SP1 because it causes problems with some of my other software.

Anyway, does the flickering happen for you too or not?

The maximize button is grayed out and no moving handles appear when I move the cursor to the window borders. ...

Application Window won't resize
Hey guys, I have an application window that won't resize. It will fill the whole screen and when it is minimized it shrinks in to the task bar. You can't resize it. I closed the application, shut it down, restarted and re-opened and it continues to have no medium to it. Any way to fix this?
