I am having an issue with a computer I built myself. I believe it's a software issue. When I finished building the computer, I used an unregistered version of Windows 7 OS, 32-bit which worked absolutely great. When I decided to get a legit copy of Win7, I checked on the Windows site to see if my computer was compatible with a 64-bit version, and it said it was. I bought a Win7 64-bit OEM off of Amazon and installed it (not an upgrade, a complete system wipe was required).
The problem my computer is suffering is hard to explain and kind of specific. When I click on a field on certain programs (could be a tab, a drop-down menu, a comment box, or a search bar, for instance), no other fields will respond to a click unless I minimize and maximize the window. I have to minimize and maximize every time I click a different field. This happens only with certain programs, and I noticed especially among programs that use their own custom window skin/title bar (as in, the minimize button, restore button and close button on the window seem to be modified). I will try to post a YouTube video of my problem for people to get a visual aid for what I'm talking about.
Can anyone tell me what's wrong and how to fix it?
This problem hardly occurs on my other user account. Both accounts have administrator privileges.
I don't want to try to download Windows 10 until this is fixed, because the Windows 10 download is an upgrade, and I'm worried whether it will lay a new OS over a faulty foundation without solving the problem.
