Window backgrounds bug to black

Hi there everyone,

Having a very annoying & intermittent problem where the backgrounds of anything I open either show as blacked out or visually don't update if there is any change.

It's a little hard to explain so I've got this link to show you what I mean: click here if I log out and log back in to Windows everything returns to normal. However it keeps happening every so often, I can go days without being troubled by it, and then have it occur many times in a short timespan.

Anyone any ideas to the cause? I'm running Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates. I've tried a complete removal of my GFX card drivers (Its an NVIDA GTX 760) and also conducted a clean install of the drivers. It doesn't seem to have made any difference, I've even tried the latest BETA drivers before reverting back to the latest fully tested ones, so I'm running out of ideas pretty fast.
