Thanks Roy
Ive attached a pic taken from my phone which shows what the box looks like. However, i managed to get rid of it.

I tried to do a screen print as you requested but neither that or the snipping tool showed the box so i figured the problem must have something to do with my actual monitor as opposed to Windows. I have a AOC monitor and i played around with the settings. Theres a setting called clear vision and this made the box go.
