Can't you just hold down a left click and hover your cursor over the edge until you see a double arrow and then drag it back.

Well if this problem just cropped up do a system restore. In case you are not familiar with how to do that.

Is the window you need to move completely missing?

I have never used this program, but if you don't come up with another solution it might be worth a try. It is freeware.
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Launch...ls/ZenKEY.shtml

With ZenKEY you will have control of almost all aspects of your PC only with the mouse and keyboard.

Using keystrokes that work no matter what program you are in, you can:

Launch a program or bring it back into focus
Open a document, folder or Internet resource
Automatically make active or inactive windows transparent
Move across and place windows using an "infinte" desktop space
Minimize or maximize a window
Resize, move or alter a window
Perform an internet search
Issue a Media command, such as play, pause or volume up/down
Start your screensaver or shutdown your computer
Access hidden Windows utilities
Control Winamp or compatible media players (we love QCD Player!)
Instantly display any menu of programs or actions at the mouse pointer
Launch a program automatically on ZenKEY startup
Set the Mouse pointer speed
Simulate a series of keystrokes
Switch between tasks


Using the ZenKEY configuration utility, you can add any program, add or alter any menu, and assign any keystroke to perform any action.

Here are some key features of "ZenKEY":

Open a program or a file
These actions launch a program or open a document (with its associated application). If you launch a program that is already running, you can choose whether this program should be brought to the foreground, or whether ZenKEY should launch a new instance of it. You can also choose to launch programs automatically on ZenKEY startup.
Control program windows
These commands can be used to reposition program windows, to change their properties, to alter their transparency (XP and 2000 only) or even to send them to the system tray. You can tell ZenKEY whether you want the action to be performed on the currently active window (default), or whichever window is lying under the mouse cursor.
