Windows 7: invisible dropdowns

invisible dropdowns

Every so often over the past few weeks I've had an issue with invisible dropdown menus.
Has only happened a hand-full of times (~20).
I usually use Chrome so was only seeing it there until it happened the other day in IE, I also have it happening in Thunderbird a bit...
What happens is a very faint outline of the dropdown shows, you do not see the items in the dropdown list or the mouse when over the dropdown but you can click on items (if you guess where they are) & it works.
I think this started happening a month or so back after a fresh install on an SSD.
I was thinking at in Thunderbird it could have something to do with the program running on an SSD & a delay as it grabs whatever from my mail stored on a traditional HDD?
There is a bit out on the web about this but I trust you guys more than most Google results.
