I Tried the monitor on two laptops (don't have other desktop) and used them for 2 hours and didn't saw any boxes....so i think that monitor is fine as it was before the upgrade....

Hi KostasPAP
A number of Malware Techs have looked at this and the consensus is that it is not believed to be malware related.
Have you checked out the TIM?
The rapid temperature increases may be the result of power spikes from the PSU.

Applying the TIM is a part of the process of elimination, if the problem is caused by the PSU applying fresh TIM will not prevent the temp rises or display issue, had you not recently fitted a new CPU inadequate TIM application would have been less likely as the cause so may not have been suggested.

Your English is very good :thumbsup:
To clarify, if you had not recently changed your processor you would not have had to check the TIM.
