Something has happened with my computer and I don't know how to fix it. All of a sudden, if I reduce the size of the page I am using and move it around, I get an outline image of the page, and then the page follows and fills in the outline. I don't know how this happened but I am hoping there is a way to fix it, if anyone can understand what I am trying to explain. I don't like it the way it is now.

> This may be a change is a display setting. Click "Start", click "Control Panel", click "Display", click the "Appearance" tab, click the "Effects" button (bottom right). Is the "Show windows contents while dragging" box checked? If not, do so, click "OK", click "Apply", click "OK". If back to normal, disregard the rest.
> This may seem a odd question. Do you leave your machine on continuously or power off (not sleep or hibernate) when finished? If not power off, do so now & reboot. If back to normal, disregard the rest.
> You might need to run cleanmgr. This is a MS Windows utility that takes out the trash, so to speak. In XP, click "Start", click "Run", enter <cleanmgr> (with out braces). I believe Vista & Win7 are similar. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/W... Note: if you don't change the settings for which file to clean up you'll be fine. The defaults are safe. Even if all are selected, mostly just an inconvenience.
Post back if problem continues.

I took your suggestions. Everything looks find in Display in Control Panel.
I went to start - run - and entered cleanmgr. After awhile it asked me if I wanted to compress files, and was I sure that I wanted to do so. I wasn't sure so I did not do it. Thanks for the suggestions.
