Windows 7: Strange graphical glitches with menus

Strange graphical glitches with menus

Hello, about 10 months ago I started experiencing troubles with my menus glitching out and freezing on top of my programs. The only way to get with of these was to either enter a full screen program or to resize my screen and revert it back to normal, needless to say this was damn tedious to do every time I needed to right click on something. The problem randomly went away after about a month... I didn't question it, I just counted my blessings. Now out of the blue, the issue has popped back up again! I didn't install any new software, or make any changes to my computer, I simply restarted it and then it started happening again.

Here are some screenshots to explain what's happening

When I right click, I get this ghost looking menu

It fills itself in once I hover over it though

Then whatever I click on decides to stay behind

On top of anything I wanna do, this makes it incredibly annoying if it's somewhere important

Then resizing fixes everything, until I wanna right click again

One thing to note is once the menu is stuck on the screen, the ghost effect doesn't happen with the menu.

Thank you in advance for your help
