Hi,

I have a rather peticular problem / annoyance whenever I play games.

Please see this link in for the picture on the problem.

Whenever I play games, this circle, compass like red ring appears on the game screen, unable to remove it, select it or interact with it at all.

I have a fresh Win 7 x64 installation with the latest updates installed, the Catalyst 13.9 suite just installed, otherwise, nothing else installed.

There are no overclocking done, everything is default on the card and the rest of the hardware.

I've never seen or heard of this problem before, so I'm at a total loss on what to do in order to remove / solve it.

 

Kind regards,

LolanErik

It looks like it could be something from a hardware monitoring program of some kind. Sorry.. never seen that particular object before so just guessing.

It's not a HW monitoring tool. None are installed.

I found the cause: It's Sonic Radar
