Windows 7: Persistent page margin formats on screen

04 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Persistent page margin formats on screen

Persistent screen problem where rectangle figures representing margins of a page (I think from Word) are displayed on every web page, application, even my desktop. It is persistent through restarts, shutdowns, power cycles, etc. It sometimes changes from a single figure (8x11 Letter) to three figures (representing 4x6, 3x5, 2x2 cards). Sometimes the name of the format appears in the figure. Currently, I have the 3-figure configuration (portrait in solid lines and landscape rotated in dotted lines) across the page. All display intensity outside of the figure is muted inside is normal intensity. Immediately after sleeping the images are not present for a second, but the rogue process soon finds a processor and there they are again. This problem is PERSISTENT! Please help!

Run a full scan with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpwyare - decline the trial versions to just use the scanner.
