Default Well, I don't think this is supposed to happen...

I don't think I've had this kind of desktop corruption since the Windows XP days!

That's what you get for putting Senna and not Prost on your desktop.

I have no clue whatsoever. This is the first time the issue has crept up, so if it keeps on doing so, that'll be the time to investigate. I'm hoping it just has to do with the fact that I'm running a GPU-accelerated app inside of a virtual machine like 24/7 - though realistically, that's a normal use of computing, so it shouldn't happen regardless.
