Download and install the latest version of AVAST, or try MSE.

Do you mind if I take a look at some of the settings on your computer via teamviewer?

Btw, I need to know:

How many graphics card do you have?
Seeing the list under your display adapters it shows 4.

Have you tried using only 1 that is HD 5450 and seeing if the issue still persists?

2 of them are Air Display (an app) drivers. One of them is the integrated one. Alright, ill try disabling all of them.

Oh my god. That was it! Wow, I spent a whole day on this thing! > Well. I hope this thread will help anyone who stumbles upon it.

Conclusion: Disable all other graphics drivers except for your main one.
