As a workaround try switching to windowed mode before using the menus - seems to help in a lot of cases.Think win7 broke somethingJohn Ellison

I had that problem too... It does that too in Vista and 7. I haven't found a fix. I just deal with it. If you go into window mode than it won't do that.Taylor Oldham

Not Sure... I heard that in window mode you get a slight fps loss like 1 fps. Taylor Oldham

To me this only happens in the Queen, not in default aircraft, am trying to do a complete reinstall of FSX :(

Not sure why this is happening :( . I'm running both FS9 + FSX on Win 7 with no problems what so ever. what type of win 7 you got?(I have win 7 Ultimate 64bit).
