I am having issues with grey/white boxes appearing around text in certain programs, so far I have found it in chrome and spotify. I noticed this recently after a windows update. I've tried:
  • updating graphics drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling both programs, but to no avail
  • downloading firefox to see if the problem would persist there as well, but it doesn't
  • running virus checks, such as malwarebytes premium, but it's clean.
Everything else is operating normally and I can't seem to find anything online to help me narrow down what the problem might be.
See screen shot of spotify, chrome, computer systems attached below. Please help??

It's not just Spotify, it's also google chrome. I added a snap of what my gmail looks like through chrome. These grey/white boxes are driving me nuts!
