I don't remember having these "solid" black borders on many of my menu items/functions on my Mac.

e.g I checked my Mac OS X version and I notice a solid dark black border around the "Mac OS X"

The bottom border runs through the middle of the version number 10.7.3


I also get that border on other functions items etc.

Very strange.

And also I have this oblong looking window on my desktop that will display what action/function I am doing or switch to?

I checked for malware but it found nothing.

Any help???

Thanks

Open your System Preferences application and select "Universal Access". Click on the "Seeing" tab. Now check to see if by chance you turned on "VoiceOver". If you did, turn it off.

We see this all the time with folks who have a cat. Seems like the Kitties love to walk on the keyboard!
