Default Windows Overlap / Step On Other Windows

I have a Dell XPS400. 2 gigs of RAM, Running Windows XP. Using less than a third of the 130 gig hard drive. I have a Samsung Sync Master Monitor. GeForce 6800 graphics card 256 MB.

Not always... but just lately, Open windows step on each other and I am looking at part of the contents of another open window even though it is not the window on top. When I move my open window... sometimes it keeps duplicating the borders of the open window all over while I move it.

This happened a couple years ago and someone gave me a simple fix and now I can't remember what it was. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks so much for your help and advice.

Try reinstalling your video drivers and see if that helps.
