Windows 7: What is causing this image burned on my screen?

I've had this problem with all NVIDIA drivers.

Clicking the button wouldn't do anything. Think of it as someone taped that on your screen.

It is not always the same. Today I just figured it out how to "reproduce" the problem. If I launch a game like COD 6, and get out, the tab will disappear. But once I do a right click, AND click on any tab, that tab will stick on the screen.

Note: I don't know what program is causing this.

Best solution for me is to uninstall a program one-by-one. I know it would be rather hard work or long-term, but it's best if you prefer not having it like that.

If one program you uninstalled doesn't do it, then just re-install it to go to the next one.

The problem is I don't know what causes this. It comes like once a week.

Do one-by-one uninstall to every program installed on your computer. Do you know when this started happening, though? Maybe you can trace back the last installed program, and that could have caused the most possibility that this is your issue.

I noticed that, too. All those things running in your system tray and task bar can take up alot of resources, and sometimes even make your computer "lag" which can cause the "burning" of the tab there.

Unforunately I don't have time to uninstall one program at a time and figure out what the problem is. I'll just live with it, and hope it won't happen.

If anyone knows why this happens, I'm always happy to hear a solution.

Thanks guys.
