When i login to my computer, part of my desktop is white even though my desktop wallpaper is solid blue. However, I still see the taskbar properly across the screen. I've logged in and out about 10 times, sometimes the white space changes in size and dimension but it always touches the top edge of screen.

I turned screen saver off, changed background color, screen saver, tried different resolutions. I tried google but actually didn't find a similiar problem/solution.

This only happens when i login as a particular user. If i login as Administrator, it doesn't the desktop is fine.

I just finished running the following programs:
  • Advanced System Care3
  • Emsisoft Anti Malware
  • Lavasoft
  • SUPERAntiSpyware
  • Malewarebytes Anti Malware
  • HijackThis (but i haven't removed anything based on the log file)
Help is appreciated...

Advanced System Care has a registry cleaner which I have read by trusted contributes that it is a myth that it improves anything but can actually damage your system. You should try using spybot and super antispyware as these are in my opinion are better than the soft scanners since I find especially with the anti malware there are a lot of false positives. I do not know anything about this problem so you should wait till someone more knowledgeable can answer.

No Worries - thanks for your reply anyway.

Actually, since i gave myself a few days to fix this monster of a computer, i thought i would run the scans from each software, but not fix them, just to see which software was better. But i had ambiguous results: They were all different and each found a different number of problems. But all of them found major problems.

I will keep my eye on Advanced System Care3.

Anybody else have a go at er?

I deleted the windows user (with the option of saving the users files) and created a new user. The problem is not on this new user.

My guess is that you just clicked something that had to do with the setup of your graphics, and that put that strange whiteness up there.

I don't know about that.... unlikely.

It was weired because each login had a different sized white space...
