Windows 7: folder contents carry over

folder contents carry over

I got this weird issue i can't figure out. Only happening to one person in my company. When she opens, for example, a folder to look at the contents, then closes or minimizes the folder, the list of folder contents shows on the window behind it, or a PDF file would show the text, etc. on the webpage open in Chrome behind it.

User is on a Lenovo T460s, with Win7 Enterprise x64. OS is current with all windows updates through Sept. release. I've updated video driver, chipset, BIOS, and a few other drivers that showed critical updates. Rebooted a couple times for these drivers, but the issue still persists.

Haven't found anything yet on Google searches for this.

She probably needs to disable Aero. To do this:

Right click on the desktop and choose Personalize.
Click Window Color, and uncheck Enable Transparency.
Save the changes.
