I have Win 7 (64). My rig is just 11 months old now. So everything is still newish. 
So very short version is when I go to start any program my screen will be replaced by what my screen looked like earlier in the day. Sort of like a screenshot in time, I can't click anything mind you. Although I can move my cursor. It only does it for about 5 seconds then returns to my current screen.  (link to screen before/after below so you can see what I mean).
Since this happened I've replaced my monitor, video card, motherboard and power supply. Doesn't seem to fix it. I've ran virus scans using things like Malwarebytes, Spybot and MSE. Nothing turned up. This only leaves my CPU or RAM. Do you think its either of those? Or maybe the hard drive? 
I can tell you when I check the SMART/Health of my hard drives they are all at 95%-100%. No errors turn up. And ram wise I did run some memory test when you restart windows, I let it run for about an hour but nothing turned up. So not sure what else to do. I realize reformatting is an option, but I want to make sure its not hardware related or some easy fix first before going the reformat route. Just because its a pain.
Though if I had to can I just reinstall windows over itself so that I don't lose anything? Again, this is a last ditch thing if I have no other choice and its not my hardware.
