found out how to fix it if anyone else has this problem

Go to: Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, then click "Settings" under the Performance area. In Visual Effects, select "Show Windows Contents While Dragging." Click Apply then OK. If this is already selected then deselect it, click Apply then reselect it and click Apply again.
