"Fade" behind windows? I have a problem, but not even sure what it is!

Hi guys, sorry for a terrible title, and probably wrong category, but I don;t know what happened. I don't even know what to type in google to help me resolve my issue. I have this weird fade/blur/shadow, don't even know how to name it behind everything that I do on my desktop:
<--- The red areas is what I mean, I hope you can see.

Here you can see it better I suppose:

Does anyone know how to solve it? I just bought the machine, and installed the system. I hope that at least the problem is clear enough, don't know about the solution. Thank You All.

Welcome to the forum,

I would think it's one of these settings,

Visual Effects Settings - Change

Possibly this one I outlined in red,

Themes?

I'm not sure what the problem is.
The circled areas look like the Windows default wallpaper.

If you mean the shading on the window edges, that looks like a theme effect.
Try changing your theme to "Windows 7 Basic" (or one of the other themes in that section).

Also, check if you have "Enable transparency" selected.
