strangest problem I've ever seen.
on Aug 20, 2007 at 1:13:42 pm

I've just cleaned my mac.

It's a dual 2ghz, 3.5 gb ram, OSX 10.4.10

When I started the mac the first time, I saw a square just about the size of the mouse arrow.

Whenever I start something new like open an extra page in finder. A square around the mouse arrow stays in the new image.

This happens with everything I do.

The best way to explain to show it in pictures.

As you can see under "Skrivebord" there is a blue square. There is also a grey area on the left side of the picture.

I have no idea about what to do.

The hardware check turned out ok.

PLEASE HELP ME!!!

[The Dagfather] "I've just cleaned my mac. "

What exactly do you mean by cleaned?
Physically cleaned, or cleared off the hard drive by erasing and installing?
