Windows 7: Show Window contents while dragging malfunctioning

Show Window contents while dragging malfunctioning

I have been having problems with my computer not showing the windows contents while dragging. About once every 2 weeks, I will turn on my computer and that function will be disabled. So what I would do is go to Computer Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Performance Settings, and then check the "Show window contents while dragging checkbox.

Today however, in the last 2 hours, the function has just disabled itself 3 times already. Everytime, I go through the same process to turn it on and it just won't stick for more than an hour.

Any Ideas?

Kind of sounds as if something - like some program or maybe even graphics settings is overriding the setting somehow.

DON'T show Window's contents when dragging!?
I cannot for the life of me work out how to do this on 7! Driving me mad... In XP / Vista it's as easy as right click, properties, advanced settings under where you change the Window colour etc then untick the box which says 'Show Window's contents whilst dragging' at least I think that's right!...
