Top right page icon missing

Hi all.

I am sorry I can not explain the post descriptions any better but here is the problem.

Lately I have noticed that a number of times when I click on a links from already displayed Internet page when that page comes up, the top right corner of the new window, where the "Minimize, Full-screen and Close window" the red cross should be is now missing and the title bar appears as if that area has in fact been cut out with a pair of scissors.

The same area as the described missing bit also appears on the left side of the title bar. In other words, both ends of the blue bar are recessed.

Yet if I click on the "vacant" area on the top right where the red "X" should be, the screen closes down as it I had in fact clicked on the red "X".

Any ideas as to how I can fix this problem?

Regards

Janset, Right click your Desktop, choose Properties, under the Settings tab change the Color Quality from 32 bit to 16 bit, click Apply/OK. Now go back and change it from 16 bit to 32 bit, click Apply/OK. This will rebuild the IconCache.db file and may correct the pronlem. It's worth a try.

Hi Tufenuf.

Sadly it did not work. I am trying to do a web search, but how do you discribe this problem in only 2 or 3 words for Google?

Hi there Tufenuf.

I went to your Google link and it looks like this problem can occur in different programs not just when web surfing.

I only really found one entry that came close to my actual screen problem. Here it the authors answer:

>I just figured out how to get the window's context menu to show up.

>If you drag the mouse over the jewel and click before it registers the hover (e.g., before it changes color), the context menu is shown. Not sure, but this looks like a bug to me.

>I think the context menu should always appear when right-clicking anywhere on the title bar or jewel, which is the standard windows behavior.

What is he talking about when he says "jewel"? His OS is windows 7 also.
