    Green changing numbers/square in explorer screen (metro)

    Yesterday I've gone back to a restore point from 2 days earlier.

    The reason for that is that I clean installed the supposedly latest stable driver for my videocard.
    I had 344.48 and went to 347.09
    It was stable, but not more then what I was on and the FPS were around 15 lower.
    I clean installed my old driver again, but for some reason I had the feeling it didn't perform as it did.

    That made me restore to the point before updating the driver at all.

    Everything ingame works fine again, but since the restore I have this weird problem whenever I open the explorer metro style.
    An example is when browsing for an attachment from the Mail app or Internet Explorer (metro).

    As following:

    Click image for larger version

    I did SFC scannow, scan/check disk, removed and reinstalled the mail app (which doesnt make a difference since its in Explorer).. I even did some fix it and troubleshooters...

    Who knows how I can get rid of this?
