Windows 7: Slow program exit back to desktop

Slow program exit back to desktop

Lately when I exit a program (doesn't seem to matter which program I'm in), the desktop will reappear, but the last screen in the program will VERY SLOWLY disappear in inch-square chunks--like one per 3-4 seconds. I press Esc and the desktop then fully reappears. Any idea what's going on here? Thanks.

Did you have this problem before you installed the latest driver?

Yes, but I think it started a while after I installed the updated driver.

Are you having any issues while running heavy graphics loads such as games?

No issues. No games. No heavy loads.
