There is a vertical line that starts at the first quarter of the screen, and goes all the way down to the taskbar.
It is only 1 pixel thick and ONLY on the desktop background.
It is white.
The reason I ask here, is the fact that it is there no matter what the background is. Whether it be the cover of an album from killswitch engage or the Flyers logo, it doesnt matter, it is still there.

I figure it to be a slightly corrupted file or registry key. I can live with it, it is just slightly annoying and I want it gone.

If I have to go into the System32 folder or RegEdit, I dont care how dangerous the method, I just want that annoying line gone.

I will get a screen shot, I will draw a circle around it, then I will link you to the picture :::: Any help is appreciated.

do you have another monitor handy to connect?

ctfmon is a component used to help with speech recognition, handwriting recognition, keyboard, translation, and other alternative user input technologies. It is not a system critical process and can safely be removed.

No, but as I said, I highly doubt that it is the monitor, as it is only the desktop background.
If I had another monitor, Id gladly check.
