Hello (new to forum),
I have been having a persistent, but seemingly random problem with Windows 8 desktop mode. Periodically, all GUIs that are open on my desktop will turn completely black (blank) inside the frame and remain that way. I can still move the black windows around, minimize them, and close them, but I need to sign out and log back in to get them to look normal again. The computer does not crash and the Windows "Charms" still appear and seem to work fine. This has happened many times over a couple of weeks.
I looked in the Event Viewer when this happens and the only thing I see that might be related to the time when this occurs is this information message:
I am not sure if this is a cause or effect of my problem.The Desktop Window Manager has exited with code (0xd00002fe)
Has anyone encountered this? Any ideas how to fix it?
Thank you in advance!
