Can you supply some basic info about your system? Go to Help > System Info and just copy and paste everything down to the video card memory.
Standard advice is to go to the manufacturer of your video card and install the latest drivers.
Sometimes a system is too old to handle the video demands of Photoshop CC. 512-1024 MB Vram are the new requirements.
My 2008 Toshiba shows those "skid marks" when I move a marquee selection.

Ok, you have an Intel Graphics card. Go to the Intel site and see if you have driver updates for this card.
Beyond that, I can suggest looking at your GPU settings under Edit > Preferences > Performance in Photoshop. Click on "Advanced" and dial down the settings to Normal or Basic. You can also uncheck the GPU option to see if it helps.
Basically the Intel 4500 is a few years old and may not work well for CC. You might go with CS6 until you get a newer system.
I updated my drivers, but it still did not work and the "Drawning Mode" is greyed out for me. But, you're right that my video card is old and I am going to go back to CS6. Anyways, thanks for the help, I really appreciated it.
As my brother once said when a piece of software failed to install because his system was too old, he said the error message should read: "Need more money."
