Windows 7: Blank/Flashing Windows User Interface

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Blank/Flashing Windows User Interface

Hi! How are you?

I have a strange problem with my windows interface. At random moments it starts to flash or to be blank. I've attached an .gif showing it.

In this .gif i'm using Reaper (audio software) because it was when i could capture this issue, but it happens with a lot of softwares. About anything that uses the windows interface, like the SpeedCrunch calculator, setup executables and actually any open file/choose folder dialog (as you can also see on the gif).

I've tried changing themes, but it didn't worked. What did worked once with reaper was going to computer -> advanced configurations -> performance -> configuration -> visual effects then i disabled everything and enabled again. But then i tried a second time after that and it didn't worked. Also it didn't worked for some other software like roadkill's password manager

This is not an virus/malware problem or anything like that because my pc was new, like 1 week old when i've first got the issue.

I'm out of ideas. I need help on this one!

Thanks for your attention.
