Discolored Dots?

I do not know if it is my card causing this, or if it is win7. Most of the time its not noticeable, but little red and blue dots appear on my desktop sometimes. Also when I have my 32" TV hooked up through the HDMI it gets really bad. All of my computer components are in my profile. I am also having problems with some games. Using 64-bit.

Sounds like graphics card corruption from blown or leaky capacitors to me. Install the latest driver and/or visually inspect to be sure. They should be clean looking with no funky brown substance. Flat and not rounded tops. They are easily replaced if needed. Get low esr type, matching current specs.

tiny dots over icons
I'm attaching a screenshot of my problem. I read something somewhere about how to delete it, but at that particular moment i didn't have any problems with them, now they are on all my icons, so how do i delete it?
Anyone know how to get rid of these dots?!?!?
I realize this might be a dumb thing to nitpick about, but it's always been like this for me at least since Windows XP. When I click on the desktop, the icon that was last clicked on or if there's just one icon on the desktop then that one, it gets a little dotted outline around it. There must be a...
