Recently I was struck with some potential adware and I removed it with adw cleaner and scans with Malwarebytes and my anti-virus.


Ever since I've noticed a dead zone on 1/4th of my screen which will stick to a single tab until I switch tabs in a browser or minimize a program. I've tried alt tabbing to see if there's a funny program running but there doesn't seem to be anything.


Does anyone know what this might possibly be? 


In response to opera: There isn't really much to show it's like my laptop randomly doesn't recognize my mouse is on that side of the screen(it does however show the mouse icon) so when I right click nothing happens and when I hover over something it won't even respond.

Dead zone?


Perhaps a screenshot might help folk see what you are describing.
