http://puu.sh/7oh3k.png This is what my Alice window looks like right now. I move my mouse over buttons and they appear but then I move it down into the programming window and it like drags and overlay of the window over everything. This is the first time I've had an issue with this and nothing has changed in my install since I downloaded it in January.

Running Windows 7 64 bit on a i7 4770k 8GB ram if that helps anything.

Hi Tim,
No idea why this is happening but in general for weird problems, close everything and shut down the computer. Wait a minute; then turn it back on and wait 4 to 5 minutes before doing anything.
  1. Shutdown means the computer is off, not sleep, logged off, hibernate, double secret hibernate ...
  2. The 1 minute wait is to ensure the computer is fully discharged. Turning a computer on while the fans are still spinning etc. is a very bad idea.
  3. The 5 minute wait is to give everything a chance to startup, take care of updates that might need to finish, etc. Many times trying to do things (open a browser, word ... ) while the computer is still doing house keeping can cause everything to slow to almost a halt.
