Windows 7: Cannot the windows preview if I don't click on the preview thumbnail

Cannot the windows preview if I don't click on the preview thumbnail

Hello,

I have trouble with a particular position with the display windows,
When I'm putting the mouse over the thumbnail window I see it correctly but the original windows is "transparent" I don't see the information to say that I do not see its contents as I have not clicked on the thumbnail, on other items just drag the pointer over the thumbnail for the full window visible.

I hope I have made ​​clear, if anyone can help me?

Sincerely,

Already search in registry with no help,

Now I am assuming that th blank parts are - where your "ordinatuer" is should be filled with others?

The reason I asked how long this had been the case is because you could use system restore to before the date this started to happen.

However there are a few things that can do this - malware obviously, the file system getting corrupted and a recent update would be three things I would target first because they are known culprits.

Plus for example the problem started three days ago then just restore back to before that date but before you do that run sfc and then these on call scanners all are free and just maybe pick up a PITA piece of malware that sometimes load just to make life difficult.

So start with a sfc /scannow SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
then
Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer < may take a while to do for the first time

SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

AdwCleaner Download

If these come up with anything get rid of it if not then do the system restore this is just some simple things to do first to eliminate things as we go.

System Restore


Do these in that order and let us know what happens.
