Here are some note-able examples...
First examply is a healthy Windows Explorer / File Explorer "this right-hand panel child folder-file item is current in this Explorer window."
Second one is evidence of an 'activated' security 'bug' that buzzed onto desktops around the end of Vista's reign. It may be
less worrisome for Window 8 than it is for Windows 7. But as long as you groom your Windows/Window security regularly, it should not be so much of an issue. According to a tier 2 support engineer, it is very low level 'backboard' issue that is not going to 'go away' for at least a decade. It is a warning signal, though.
SecEdit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose from System32 admin command. whenever you wuapp your system or install payload... Oh!, and to immediately lose the dotted desktop outline (which was so reasuring in Windows 3.1), simply
(lol) reboot, or logoff and login. If the outlines persist, reinstall Windows. Unless you're on a networked terminal, and then you might have to live with it! BURB!
...some viruses flip-on the outlines too, and this post in no way relates to virus infections.
