how much RAM do you have and how many progs have you got open all at the same time? It might be just a case of pc struggling to keep up.

This used to happen to me when I ran Win98se. As lotvic suggests, your system may be running out of resources. Or, could also be due to some other buggy program running/locking-up in the background. G

Are all the programs you've mentioned running at the same time when the problem occurs? Does this also happen when the PC is just booted up? G

Its there from boot up nothing open, I test it out by opening control panel and draging the window and it just leaves multiple parts of its self it dose catch up.

Do you have upto-date antivirus & spy/adware programs & have you run scans with them? G

Dont know I asked for 512MB of ram but it only shows 384MB.It means that 128 are some where else.
