confused,monitor/graphics card or windows issue?

greetings
okay 2 weeks back i got a new mobo - which is on my spec cause the previous foxconn wouldn't support my also new graphics card as on spec.
so the thing is there was a issue while maximizing the windows (say,my computer,my pictures,browser or similar) there seems to appear a black box around the search (after my bro took it to the local shop & got the new stuff fixed it - was gone). (zip to video [it is virus free] - please watch it several times if you see nothing)
so, today i did a fresh install due to some reasons & this problem appears again (note again: i did see it before sending it to the shop but it wasn't there after i got it back again until the fresh install)
i haven't tried fidgeting with the catalyst control center yet..but i would like to know your opinions, & is there a fix for this?
appreciate any help and time

I personally can't figure out what it is your asking for help with, could you possibly try and explain what it is your seeing??
Thanks Fabe

This problems sounds like it is software related. I've made a small guide sometime ago here's the link below. You need to follow the 3rd and 4th step (Make sure to remove display drivers before)

well..i checked 4 other computers. & seen the same thing happen.. (black box appearing near the search) so i guess its normal for it to happen in my pc too. & abt noticing that it dissappeared after returned from the shop, must have been some illusion lol . anyway, thanks for looking into the matter.i'll just uninstall and reinstall the drivers once. so im marking this thread as solved ..
