    Whilst it's 2019, I'm still using Windows 7 and experienced this exact problem.

    The solution for me was to remove the AMD Hydravision application that is installed by default as part of the Catalyst Drivers package! Removing this fixed the issue whereby about a space 100px to the left of the minimise button does not recognise clicks or drags! Very annoying!

    2012 HP Laptop still going strong with Windows 7, although I recently re-installed the O/S and drivers so this problem re-appeared.

    See if Process Monitor will help you to figure out why the integrity level matters to your problem.
    This bit made we want to comment (on a years old resurrected thread!).

    I also have a non cooperating window problem! I have a game application (No Man's Sky) that when in windowed mode refuses to let me move the window around (it sits 'centered' in the screen at the given windowed resolution). In the earliest version of the game you could do it, but not since it's been updated. The devs of the game are very selective around giving help to users, so i have had no luck in trying to get a solution via them or the games community itself.

    I generally play my games windowed (and it is an option within the specific game settings) so i can monitor temps at the same time.

    I have tried a few things (from run as admin to specific windowing tools like dxwnd.exe) to try to be able to move the window, but for these last few years nothing has worked. This is the only game i have this problem with, all the rest i can move around as normal.

    The basic setup is a native 1920x1080 display with games usually set to run windowed at 1600x1024 (or less), with my hardware monitoring tools on the right and the windowed game dragged to position from the top left of the display, this allows me to see all the relevant data from the hardware monitoring tools and play the games.

    So what can Process Explorer (which i have) show me to maybe get back control of my windowed program here as i had not heard of this approach before? Can i force the damn window to behave like a window (in windows) is meant to behave?!

    i just used DXWind today --- if you want to move your games windowed SIMPLE, just = press Windows Key (hold) + arrow key (left/r/u/d)

    i've played many game in windowed mode (dxwind) thats all working well ~big thanks to developer!
