My intention was to show you a solution that differs from your current implementation and pointing to the fact that you block the message loop.

You must not call WaitForSingleObject from within your main thread to ensure that the window is repainted (e.g. when moving another window over the application window). That will solve the problem of paint corruption and might also solve your other problems.
Overall I think I must shout:
Don't use WaitForSingleObject from within your main GUI thread; especially with long wait times!

I (like most others here) will not download a complete project and build it. Especially in this case where it must be tested with XP too.
