Hi there,

Try going advanced system settings and changing the performance settings.

I have posted a couple of screen shots on how to do that.

Click start, right click my computer and then click properties.

Next click Advanced System Settings, a window will appear click the settings box under performance and with your settings I believe it should run fine with 'Adjust for best appearance'. Click apply and see the results.

This is the one thing to have checked to show windows while dragging, if you've unchecked some other things for better performance.

Firefox artifacts on (classic style) taskbar?
I am seeing small artifacts on the upper edge of the taskbar (using classic view, I could use Aero if I wanted to). I'm not convinced that this is actually browser related, it is just that since I have a browser up full time, that is what is leaving artifacts behind. If I resize the bar, IE drag it...
