Need a computer/tech savvy guy to help w/ Windows 7.
This just started appearing and I have no idea WTF to do/is going on. MalwareBytes didn't find anything and I can play my MMOs just fine.

The blue background appears on the menu items like "FILE" also when I hit ALT +F in firefox. Any ideas?

Click on the firefox tab, go to add-ons, in the add-ons manager click on the plugins tab. Find whatever it is that is running and click delete.

Is it not a search bar? I had something like that one time, down on or near the system tray. It wasn't blue though..

No, it's the normal mouse-over popup. As well as all other menu-items in the windows OS. They are all blue background with black text.

I'm sorry but doesn't it say 96% available (plugged in but not charging)? If so, I'd check your battery. BTW that would mean it's probably not windows but hardware related. hf

I actually had the same issue-plugged in but not recharging with my HP laptop after a power outage. Unplugging and plugging back in a couple times solved it although I did run HP's battery check which turned out fine. Since it appears you were messing with drivers I wonder if you didn't corrupt your hardware battery reporting code. From my experience, I highly doubt it is windows but your hardware drivers which are at fault. I'd check that first. hf

I agree completely about gaming. A personal built computer will blow the doors off any console available, especially for MMORPG'S. hf
