Windows 10 graphical glitch - Alienware 18

Last Modified: 2016-01-01
Dear All,

I am experiencing a strange graphical glitch in windows 10, The start menu appears pixilated (as per attached screenshot - Visual studio icon for example has RGB pixles in the orange background) this also effects the photo viewer were RGB pixles can be seen in various photos. I suspect that this is a windows 10 issue since the glitch disappears in full screen applications such as Fallout 4 ( no artifacts or pixiles) . I have updated the drivers to the latest provided by Nvidia to no avail.

Any suggestions what could be causing this?
