Why window explorer cannot ....

    Lately, I found that I cannot move window explorer off screen or
    partially off screen. If any portion of it is moved off the screen,
    it will bounce back.

    Any settings or any malware involved ?

    Thanks very much for your kind advice.

    Why not just minimize it?

    I can move Win IE 8 totally off screen and can not find any switch (setting)
    in my search of options that would cause your issue but that doesn't mean
    that it isn't there somewhere.

    Have you rebooted the computer, run full malware scans using at least two
    anti-malware programs and also determined if anything was installed or
    uninstalled when this problem first occurred?

    That's usually under control of your video card settings. My Nvidia has such
    a setting.

    I'll check my video card. I think I might have changed something.
    I'll come back here if I can';t solve it. Thanks to all who
    responded.

    I can't find the setting Nvidia. But I notice that I can actually
    move it off screen. What I need to do is to move and hold it there
    for a while. Then it will stay. If I move and release the mouse
    pointer, it will spring back.

    Now, where is that setting ? hmm.

    You will still be able to refer to it if you minimize it.
