I recently installed a game called Hammerwatch through Steam, the game client service. When I first started playing Hammerwatch, there would be some pixelation and pixels in the wrong spot when I first started the game but it went away as soon as I got past the title screen. Yesterday, the strange pixel problem was happening as soon as I turned my computer on and got to my login screen. When I started steam and played Hammerwatch, the problem went away. Today, I ran into the same problem and tried the same steps to get rid of the problem but it didn't go away and won't go away no matter what I do. I updated my graphics card driver, updated Microsoft.net Framework and the Visual C++ Package, tried changing screen resolution and various other settings but I've had no luck. I know it's not a problem with the display since the BIOS screen and Microsoft start up logo don't show this problem. I ran malware and virus scans which came up with nothing. I also ran CCleaner in case it was a registry problem but I didn't have any luck there. This is driving me crazy, if anyone has any ideas I'd greatly appreciate it. I attached some screenshots of the issue.
