Windows7 desktp bckgrnd still there after maximizing program

Specs: Windows 7, 64-bit / 8GB
I recently bought an HP Pavilion dv7 with Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit OS, an Intel Core i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz, 8GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics card. I’m running AutoCAD 2012. When a work break comes, I minimize the program. Upon returning, I maximize the program and see AutoCAD’s extreme borders with Windows 7’s desktop in the drawing area. I left click once in any viewport and see “pixelating” or “stepping” following the crosshairs (while moving the mouse), revealing, (in these “pixel boxes”), the current drawing behind the Windows 7 desktop background. This is what should have been displayed when the program was first maximized. I need to “REGEN” in each viewport in order to get full screen resolution.
I do not have the desktop background set to the “Aero” theme. It is set to “Windows 7 Classic” theme. I checked my graphics card settings with the help of an HP phone tech. The tech was confident that it was not the graphics card. Also, please note that I did notice this occurrence with one other program; it may not be limited to AutoCAD.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If it only happens with autocad & no other program, I wouldn't think that it was the video card either. Boot the machine to safe mode & test it there. If it doesn't happen, there is a software conflict somewhere in the startup.
