I use the update manager for daily security updates automatically and other updates weekly. When I log on, it shows how many new updates are available.
Today when I opened the update manager panel it showed the new updates to install as usual. I started reading the descriptions for each update, but then the small update manager window suddenly faded to a dark shadow and it would not change back. I clicked all over and it remained faded while was open.
I clicked on the main page I had open - sending the update window to the background - then reopened the update window, the shadow was gone. Then when I again tried to read the descriptions the window faded out again. This happened each time I did this.

Previously: I have had this problem with other windows off and on for quite a while, but never with a program window. I've fiddled with the monitor display settings, but the problem keeps returning. I don't know what the problem is. Any ideas?

Thanks.
