this happens sometimes, depending on what I name a folder/file. I used no weird characters. the second word is "lit" but it does this, even when i move it around the screen. Does anyone else have problems with this?

    No, I've never seen that before. Try changing the thread title to be more descriptive and somebody might see it and know what's going on.

    I've never seen that either. Most likely something is degrading in the OS or Finder. If you restart does it go away?

    You know I had never seen that, but just today I switched from using and LCD to using a CRT, and all of a sudden I saw that exact same thing.

    Almost looks like a video card driver issue to me - what kind of comp/vid card do you have?

    sorry about the thread name. I'm using an 800 Tibook. Yes it goes away if i restart ( i think ) but it's much easier to get rid of than that. If i simply change the folder/file name to smthg. else then change it back, it appears normally. Wow, i can't believe no one else has ever seen this, I've had it multiple times.
