    That looks to me like a Color Quality issue, a problem caused by high-quality icons when the display color settings are 16 or 24-bit instead of 32-bit.

    Right-click on the desktop, click "Screen Resolution", then click "Advanced Options" in the bottom-right. Click on the Monitors tab and check what the "Bit Depth" is in the drop- down menu at the bottom. If it is set at either 16-Bit or 24-Bit, change it to 32-Bit, apply the settings and see if that changes anything (you might have to restart your computer)

I really don't know what happened by for some reason, all the icons on the right-click menu changed into rectangle boxes. Been googling and searching forums for similar issues but found nothing, and it's really bugging me. :( Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/eRB4F.png
