    EDIT:
    The aforementioned option doesn't work for the blue rectangle in your post #3, however,
    if you go to Control Panel►Folder Options►View tab and in the list check 'Use check boxes to select items', (click Apply and OK), then the rectangle won't appear when you mouse hover over a selection.

    I really can't say it bothers me greatly though if you mean the slight "fuzziness" at the extreme edge of the Icon

    Hi. No, not the translucent box, the dotted outline around it.

    Culprit may be Bitdefender 2015...even though support chat denied it's the cause.
