Can you tell us something about your Mac? Year, Model, and version of OS X you're running? It looks like a problem with graphics. The next time the green squares appear take a screen shot of your desktop. Observe the screen shot. If the green squares appear on the screen shot, it's a problem with your graphics chipset. Post back and let us know.

They do not appear in a screen shot. Here is my make and model:

MacBook Pro
13-inch, Mid 2010
Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB
Software Mac OS X Server Lion 10.7.2 (11C74)

I also discovered once I changed my background it also changed the color. So I guess its see thru squares on my screen..

Thanks!

I'd say there is a problem with the video card. You'll need to see an authorized Mac technician to fix that.
