On Windows 8 (not 8.1) I have a strange graphical issue.

My desktop wallpaper will sometimes disappear. Also, If I select folders on my desktop the wallpaper will disappear behind them. If the wallpaper has disappeared then selecting folders will show the wallpaper behind the folder.

This occurs all of the time but seemingly without any obvious pattern between input and graphical behaviours.

I'm at a loss for where to start with diagnosing this issue. Has anyone come across this?

My graphics drivers are up to date.
