Consider the following scenario:
- You have a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Vista.
- The screen resolution is set to 2560x1440 or 2048x1152.
- You are running Windows Media Center in full-screen mode.
In this scenario, a thread-shaped area of garbage appears on the right side of the screen. This area is mostly black, and it has some flickering white pixels.
This problem occurs on computers that have certain graphics drivers installed.
This is a known problem in Windows Media Center.
The following hotfix package fixed the same problem in the 1920x1080 screen resolution, but the issue also occurs in the 2560x1440 or 2048x1152 screen resolution.
