Hi. Im not actually computer scientist... I know just a little basics :) Im a gamer :D So here is the problems, my pc started being slower and slower every time i press windows button while im in game.. that wasnt the case earlier. Than, on my desktop icons,, shades started to appear.. And its so annoying.. + the fact every time i do right click it almost looks like there are 2 objects instead of one. I did a screenshot so you can see how it looks like.

Best regards

I see part of the screen has a gauzy haze instead of looking sharp.

Go into your NVIDIA graphics card settings and look at the temperature. It may be starting to overheat.

Also when you have pc turned off completely and unplugged at wall socket, hold in the power button on tower for about 20 secs to drain any residual current and then make sure graphic card and cables have not worked loose. Reseat (take out and put back in again) to make sure. Clean the fan of any fluff (use a cotton bud or paintbrush).

i did everything you told me except the temperature check,, and it worked! i took out whole graphic card and cleaned it gently.. and everything seems ok now.

thank you very much :)
