Well the problem is, whenever i minimize or maximum something i get little dots of random colors in different places. There is never more than 5 of them and it happens randomly. If i go and refresh my desktop they disapear but of course when i minimize or maximize something they will end up coming back whenever they want to. They come in different spots but mostly in the bottom center. Does anyone know how to fix this? Does anyone know what could be causing this? Rig is in my sig....... :confused:
