Welcome to the Seven Forums

Can you post a better screenshot I'm not seeing the small white box you were talking about, and maybe circle it or have an arrow pointing at it.

Thanks Julian I see it now.
I have not seen that before either.
If you change the wallpaper do you still see it?

As you try to update your Graphic card drivers?

It could be some pixel damage on the screen itself. Another wallpaper could narrow it down.
