    explorer windows merge/bleed into each other

    so when I open an excel, SAP, Outlook and other programs, the usually sort of 'bleed' into each other and get stuck that way. Killing explorer sometimes work but mostly only a restart will solve this... Tried updating drivers, BIOS, re-image the system... Nothing seems to help.

    Noted you work in an IT company.
    Are you speaking of an effect you see on just one PC or a number of PCs configured similarly?

    Please advise your Windows build
    (Win key + R, winver)

    Please go through the following basic steps.
    1. Does this happen in Safe Mode?
    If not, could be program conflict or a graphics driver issue.
    If so, try a clean boot and check again.

    2. If it does happen in Safe Mode, try creating a new user for test purposes.
    Does it happen then?

    3. If it happens in a new user account, that indicates you need to repair Windows.
    Start with
    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

    Then at an admin prompt
    and report the result.


    As for a screenshot, could you not erase all the text?
