Aero Problem

Well I get home from work and log on to my pc (dell inspiron 518 : windows 7 ultimate 32bit) and i click and drag my firefox window to the top of the screen and notice that its giving me an outline of the window, instead of moving the window itself. I am sure its not just firefox as, any other window i try and re-size by dragging to the top or to the side(s) does that same thing. so my question is, can anyone help solve my (i think its aero) problem ?


here is a screeny so any one that is interested, can have a visual of what im trying to explain

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

This happens occasionally with some system combinations, a restart solves it. Opening to full screen, or starting another program in full screen will also clear it.

Hi,

Try this guide:- Show Window Contents or Outline While Dragging

It will show you how to have the contents drag with the window.
