Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer on second monitor

Windows Photo Viewer on second monitor

Everytime I drag a new window of Windows Photo Viewer to my second monitor it freezes for a split second. It doesn't freeze completely, just as the window begins to enter the second monitor. After that, everything works fine. Does anyone know the problem? I use to be able to drag it over without any problem.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM --> RTM clean install

Hi and welcome to the forums..

Do you have updated video drivers?
Did you notice this starting to happen after something new installed?
Is it only with Photo viewer this stutter happens?
