Rainmeter visualizers

Post by NewSwisss »

About a few weeks ago my visualizers have been making weird lines after the bar rises, it leaves small squares and such. Here's an example.

This happens to every visualizer I use. Can someone help??

Some possibilities:
- failing video card (somehow doubt it, since the wallpaper and the general screen image should be affected, and it appears not to)
- very high CPU usage somewhere
- Hardware Acceleration enabled/disabled in the Rainmeter settings (the tricky variant depends on your particular hardware)
- some other skin or application that "overlaps" the visualizer
- virus (doubtful, but just to cover all I can think of)

I'd say most probably Hardware Acceleration is culprit. Try disabling it (because I think it is enabled).
