weird graphics issue

I have this issue for a while now. Been updating graphics drivers but never seems to fix it. Once in while the windows don't refresh or something and whats left is a stale graphic. It goes away after another window moves over that area of screen.

I do see one thing.

I see a themed desktop. That is, the desktop does not look stock. Frankly I've found those themes to break stuff like that.

Try creating a new user account on the PC then head back to stock.

no go

Created new user and ran the programs from the unmodified desktop. Same issue with the windows. The only thing I can think of is the program itself does not call the windows screen refresh functions appropriately. I will try to isolate the instance to confirm that.

No Mention Of RAM Amount or Computer Model, Etc..

Usually the type of graphic stalling you're seeing is related to too many programs running in the background, a program running which is glitchy, or not enough RAM and processor speed.. Or all of the above.

As a start, have you uninstalled all the unnecessary programs on the computer and eliminated all unneeded startup programs and services?

Tried checking for updates to the games you're running at the websites for the game?

Added more RAM?

Hope this helps and let us know more.

Thank you for the Task Manager picture.

Your processor has six cores? Manufacturer? Most multiple cores have four or eight. Video card and manufacturer?

That Doesn't Help Much

It shows you have available RAM, but have you done the following?

As a start, have you uninstalled all the unnecessary programs on the computer and eliminated all unneeded startup programs and services?

Clearly, there's glitch causing the screen to lag.. Failure of, or a memory leak in a background program, or the game itself, could be the issue. The glitch may be in the items mentioned..

Hope this helps.
