Q. When you drag a group of icons over the Windows Explorer task pane in Windows XP the display is corrupted?

1. Start / Run / sysdm.cpl / OK.

2. Select the Advanced tab in the System Properties dialog.

3. Press the Settings button in the Performance area.

4. Check the Show window contents while dragging box on the Visual Effects tab.

5. Press Apply.

6. Press OK.

7. Press OK.
