    Default + close Alt+F4 wont go away?

    Hi there, a curious one here for ya. I have googled for 30 minutes and not found anything yet.

    I right clicked on one of my running programs on the taskbar and selected the bottom selection (+ close Alt+F4) to close the program 2 days ago and the selection is still showing in the exact same position, two days later after several reboots.
    It is not stopping anything, but is weird ghostly hanging there on my desktop.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Cheers

    Have you run a virus/spyware scan lately?

    Maybe post a Hijackthis log file on here for Speedy to take a look at?

    if you opened something else full screen. Will that selection screen still be ghostly in the background while the other is in full screen?

    I looks like Solidworks is doing it
    It finally went away after a third reboot this morning, but done it again once Solidworks crashed in the middle on the screen with something else about 30 minutes ago.
    A reboot fixed it the first time this time (hope that makes sense)
    Might be a graphics issue with Solidworks, will check my drivers are the latest.

    Weirdest thing tho

    Thanks
