Hello. Welcome to Ubuntu.

Sounds to me like the window decorator is not working properly... If you are using compiz-fusion, you could try disabling it and see if that was causing the problem.

Does the problem persist if you disable compiz (System->Preferences->Appearance, "Visual Effects" Tab, select "None" )?

Do you know the model of your video card? What are your system resources (processor, RAM etc)?

Good luck :)

It's likely to do with compiz/grpahics - what graphics card are you using and have you installed the driver for it.

Try disabling the visual effect in System -> Preferance ->Appereance -> visual effect

and if you have emerald installed than press alt f2 and type

emerald --replace &
