Windows 7: Outline when dragging windows across desktop

If you're still using the mouse then it's software package is likely what caused the problem.

These are rarely needed - just the driver.

Yeah, it was the Thermaltake Black software that was causing this problem like I said on my previous post. I know I actually don't need the software in order to use the mouse at normal basis, but the only way to set the LEDs On and Off (mouse wheel and logo), as well as macros is through the mouse software. The good thing is that the settings stay saved.
