Bits of windows left on screen

Hi everyone,

This is my first post on tomshardware.com but I just want to say that I LOVE this website! I am on it all the time looking up reviews, and guides, and tips, and comparisons.

Anyway. I can't imagine that this isn't on the forums but couldn't seem to find it (sorry for repeat if so!).

It's simple to describe - sometimes (not all the time) if I minimize, move, or close a window bits of it remain on screen cut off. It doesn't seem to be a specific program and it happens with the right-click menus too.

Is this just a driver issue? That's the only thing I can think of.

Here are some useful specs:

i5-2320 @ 3.0ghz
Asus P8H77-V LE
GSkill Ripjaws-X 8gb @ 1333mhz
Sapphire HD 7850
Win 7 pro

Thanks!
-Ben

Hi. Right click on the desktop and check your screen resolution. Also update your graphics driver

Strange because they are updated regularly. Maybe I should remove catalyst entirely and do a fresh install. Thanks for the responses. I appreciate it.
