Windows 7: Strange blue bar appearing

Strange blue bar appearing

Hi,

I have an HP HDX Premium Series laptop (model # x16-1354CA) with Windows 7 x64 installed. Ever since I installed it, I've been getting this small blue bar (almost like a status bar) in the center of my screen. I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like. It flickers, and then disables and enables my wireless internet repeatedly. Occasionally it'll slow my computer down.

I have run several virus checkers and it has come back empty.

Any one else have this issue, or any ideas of how to fix it? It's quite an inconvenience.

Thanks!

Does it happen when you boot in safe mode (F8)?

Hi,

Sorry for the delayed response but the bar only shows up once in awhile so I was unable to check in safe mode until recently. And no, there was no bar in safe mode when I rebooted. What is my next plan of attack?
