Windows 7: Weird animation during window move

Weird animation during window move

Hey guys, my son's PC (specs in profile) has a weird (unusual? glitch? cool feature?) thing it does when you're moving windows around on the desktop. Rather than try to explain what's happening, here's a short video showing it:

When you move a window, only the outline of the window moves with your cursor; after you 'drop' it, then the actual window comes over. Is there any way to have it so the window travels along with the cursor?

Thanks!

Take a look here Visual Effects Settings - Change and ensure that the option Show window contents while dragging is checked.
