OS 10.5.8 imac 300 gb 4gb ram.. It seems that everything I click on becomes surrounded by a thin walled black rectangle. Even the HD icon the desktop has one until I open up something else. I cannot figure out why. The subject box above had one until I started to type here below and then this window has one.
Can someone help me out here? I've just noticed that when I scroll up, the rectangle remains where it is.

Under the apple, there are 2 shut downs, 2 restarts and 2 log-outs.
I cleared history, emptied the cache and cleared the cookies but still the same.
Also I cannot preview this posting, only submit.

Hi jaybass,

See if anything in this link to Frequently Asked Mac Questions might help.

Duplicate menu items, black borders, voices

doesn't it just totally creep you out when your computer suddenly starts talking to you?
