So every game on your machine even besides this one gives you this problem?
Yes, and it started randomly. I don't have a virus either because I have protection and this is my computer so I don't let people look up gross crap up on it.

Hi,

Sounds like an issue with the game itself. Have you tried reinstalling it? Have you checked to see if there are patches available form the game developer that might address this bug?

Please read previous comments. A lot of people on here seem to fail to do that (not trying to be rude, but I'm getting sick of answering the same questions because people can't seem to read other user's comments). This is doing this for all games. And again, I'll state, it wasn't doing this before. It just sort of started randomly. The only thing being affected graphically speaking, is my ingame characters and other player's characters.

Lose the attitude, or you won't get any help.

List every game and its developer, that gives the problems.

2 people have said that the problem lies with the graphics card, maybe you should pay more attention to others comments yourself, personally I would have to agree with the graphics card theory, mainly because this looks like a shader issue, but this artefacting can be caused by a hot GPU, your best thing to try is to re-install windows on a new partition and install the affected games and see if the problem persists, if so then it will be a graphics card issue, if not then we can look at other options for you.

Edit: just read through your system info and noticed that you're using windows drivers for your graphics card (Driver File Version: 8.17.0010.1124 (English), Driver Version: 8.961.0.0, DDI Version: 10.1, Driver Model: WDDM 1.1), the latest driver is 12.1 so you need to update that and also your resolution is not set to the native mode (1920x1200), please update your GPU from here : http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

I didn't have an attitude. I said "please" and even stated I wasn't trying to be rude. Kind of seems like you're being overly sensitive.

Okay, I'll try and do that. I did read those comments by the way, it's just that it's hard to believe for me that it's the graphics card because this is the first time I've even had a problem on this computer and it started so randomly. Thanks for the help though, and sorry if I ever came off as ungrateful. I really do appreciate the help.
