Sorry to bother with such a seemingly insignificant issue, but I have been Googling this for literally over a year, and it's finally come to a head, and I just need to know what the trouble is. I've never been able to find someone else who has had this issue, and it's making me feel like I'm crazy. Here's what has happened. When I was using CS5.5, I never had any issues as far as functionality, but I always l dealt with this simple, nagging bug.
For some reason, the Illustrator [ONLY ILLUSTRATOR] splash screen always displayed the loading commands with this glitched-out looking white blocky outline. I endured it for a whole generation, and just longed for the day I could upgrade and be free from this random, inexplicable aberration. Well, as luck would have it, I finally was able to upgrade this year, and I even upgraded the OS to Windows 8, but lo and behold, the white corruption is still with me.
Sigh. Has anyone else ever seen or heard of this? I've reinstalled the entire package five times or more. I've used the Adobe Cleaner Tool, I've done everything I can imagine. On the Mac side of my PC, I have no issues. Any help or insight you could offer would be much appreciated.
Thanks! I did check on the driver, and it is up-to-date. The larger question for me, though, is why specifically Illustrator does this and none of the other apps in the suite. I have only had this issue with Illustrator in both CS5 and CS6.
Has no one else encountered this issue? It may just as I'd feared! Haha. Like I said, all of the other Adobe products have normal splash screens, so I don't think a driver issue really makes sense. Why would it only be affecting Illustrator and not Photoshop, Dreamweaver, etc? I really hope I don't have to just chuck my computer off a bridge. Any other feedback would be much appreciated!
