    Weird box around the entire screen

    Hey guys, I ran into this annoying piece of visual problem today:
    This screenwide box is in front of every damn window I open.

    Click image for larger version

    Killing explorer.exe didn't remove the box. I have yet to try to restart, so I'm posting the screenshot here before I do it.

    I assume it is some sort of Metro UI bug, because dragging and dropping the desktop removed the box in a splitsecond before it went back on.

Windows 8 not using entire screen?
I installed windows 8 on my pc and it doesn't use the whole screen. There's a margin all the way around the screen. I have a 23" 1080p display and AMD Radeon 7450 graphics card. Is there any fix to this? Also, OpenGL is not working at all, for anything.
