Weird Display....

HeyGuys -

Got a weird display problem happening on my iMac G5...
see here - http://www.reef.net.au/display.jpg

This little box keeps popping up where other applications were running, or where text boxs are.....
Or if i click an icon on my desktop it gets surrounded by the box...
Also the whole computer is acting really sluggish...

oh boohoo woe is me....

anyone got any sweet ideas??

Or has someone in my office done a keyboard trick on me where it fu**s with teh computer???

Thanks

When did you first notice the problem and did you make any installs recently...? I would clean out your caches that should help with the sluggishness, and have you just tried restarting?

Are you running the Firefox Browser? I had a similar issue, and it turned out to be the version of Firefox I was running. Can't remember what that version was though. Since then, by upgrading Firefox 2.0.0.5 the issue has gone away.

One word of caution though; I can't prove it, but there have been a few times where I've noticed a sluggish response from my computer while using Firefox. It may be a total coincidence, but it's possible something is going on.

PS: The new version of Safari 3.0.2 is way faster than Firefox!
