window image remains on screen when exited

Occasionally when I exit a window some or all of the image remains on the screen. I can get rid of it by high lighting the image.
Any ideas?

I've seen that!

There are 2 common causes. One is a bad app that didn't clean up on exit. But the other is usually a video driver problem.

As the make, model and such detail is missing, I'll stop here.

Thanks Bob.
My video card is a GeForce GTX 550Ti and I just downloaded and installed the latest driver. If not, I'll watch to see if the problem is occuring in one particular program and go from there.
