Windows 7: Screen not fully clearing

06 Nov 2009   #1

Screen not fully clearing

Here's a weird issue:

Latest NVidia drivers (not Beta) on Asus 8800 GT, Apple Cinema Display 23" monitor.

Frequently, when I open a program then close it, it will often leave a radio button on the screen. The button cannot be removed, moved, or clicked. The only way that I've cleared it was to change screen resolution, then revert back.

I am running Aero settings and themes. I have plenty of memory available and the computer runs fast enough with the bells and whistles running.

I'm guessing it's an issue with the driver and a newer driver may address it, but I guess it could be something else.

Anyone seen this or any ideas?

Found the problem. My screen started doing weird things, keyboard started acting up, computer slowed ... yup, virus. Two different anti-virus scans didn't show one, but I knew on was there. I d/l Malwarebytes and did a deep scan in safe mode. There it was. Took 3 scans to completely clear the problem, but it appears to be under control.
