Windows 7: Strange Aero Issue

06 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Strange Aero Issue

Just recently noticed this weird aero problem. All the aero effects seem to be enabled but when I drag a window across the screen the window stays put and only the outline of the window is being dragged around, if that makes any sense. For example if I opened my music folder and wanted to drag it from the center of the screen to the side of the screen, usually I would be able to drag the window around while being able to see the window itself moving. With my problem, I am only able to see the outline border of the window moving while the window itself remains stationary. Thanks for the help in advance,
