Hi, I had a virus problem and during the erase process ( of the virus), I noticed this shadows/stripes when I open some pages or documents. It may be a problem with my graphics driver or it may not ?!?! I allready  uninstalled adope flash player and installed the newest version. 

In this screenshots there is a red square on the right, those shadows/stripes shoudn't be there, because on my laptop you can't see them:

Hm...if they show up in your screenshots on your computer, then I would be willing to bet that it's a hardware issue and not a software issue. If you were having a graphical issue due to the driver, then the corruption would almost surely appear in the screenshot, but I can't see anything out of the ordinary. I'd place my bets on it either being the graphics card or the monitor, with my personal guess with the given information being that the monitor is what's causing the problem.

 

Of course, I'm not the end-all authority on errors graphic drivers can cause, so it may be possible (albeit rare or uncommon) for the issue to be due to a graphic driver, but my personal bets would be on the hardware side of things.

Sometimes  i get an error mess , your graphics driver has stopped working, usualy when i'm surfing sites like youtube , or watching some video on the internet, and than after a while ( 1 min... ) my pc blocks and I have to restart it.

And I have  this issue for sometime, it may be connected with those stripes/shadows ???

You have an open topic in the MRL forum, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/518111/unknown-virus/page-2 .

 

Pleaae pursue that topci to competion before initiating other topics in other forums...the malware issues must be resolved before enlisting/requesting suggestions about "system issues" that may relate, directly or indirectly, to system infection.  You should not make any changes to your system which are not suggested by your Helper in the MRL forum.

 

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic, pending closure/resolution of the topic linked to above.  Once that topic is closed, you can send a PM to me and I will reopen this topic for discussion.

Hi Louis,

 

Just a note...I asked leneshu to post here.  The computer is clean of malware at this point, but some issues remain with the graphics display.  Looking at what we did, nothing seemed to be the root cause of this.  I was waiting to close that thread until I knew one was opened here.  So, leneshu was following my instructions.  Thanks for closing the other thread and reopening this one!
