Upper left .... that means at the reverse corner ?
At first, you are to run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to make it sure that there is no system violations .

Next question .... is it such from the very beginning, or it's a recent occurrence ? If it is a recent one, System Restore to an earlier date .

if both the alternatives fail, you are to try Repair Install .
