Vertical dashes appear across icons & other tabs???

Has anyone ever encountered this - I recently formatted my computer harddrive & reinstalled the OS - Windows XP Pro. It was working fine. Minimal stuff on it. Decided to do a defragment of the harddrive. After this I noticed this vertical dashes that appear at interval across the desktop icons, they appear across the rectangular tabs that you normally click as well. It doesn't seem to affect the actual function of the computer but its annoying. I did a google search, asked some friends about it, searched microsoft's knowledge base, etc & can't find anything on such a problem. Does anyone have a clue what is causing this & how I could reset it? I tried things like system restore but it didn't help. Thanks

Have you reinstalled new updated video drivers? This is usually the problem.

Go to your video cards website and download.
