White rectangular box in desktop screen of Thinkpad Edge E540

Hello,

My Lenovo Thinkpad E540 (Model: 20C6008QUS) shipped yesterday and during configuring it for the first time , I found a strange problem (and it was during the first few hours after unboxing). I started experiencing a weird white (or gray) rectangular box on the top-left corner of the desktop and I have no idea where it was originated from (snapshot attached).

The box doesn't show up at the startup but whenever I logon to the windows after sleep or hibernation this box pops up. This box is just blocking all the icons below it and it is very much annoying.

 

Can anyone please help me out by providing any kind of solution with it ?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

I can't say I recall ever seeing that before, but my initial thought is that it is a dialog from an application that wants you to register, install an update or some other kind of interactive message but isn't painting properly.

 

You could try bringing up the Task Manager by pressing the Ctrl+Shift+Esc keys together, looking at the apps whicha are open, and closing them one-by-one until you find the culprit. 

 

If that works to identify the program, perhaps you can update it manually.

 

Regards,
