Hi, i am having an issue with windows 7 when it starts up you know how it will display the windows logo? Everything is perfectly fine but I have noticed recently when I start up my computer it will display 2 windows logos one underneath the other in the left hand corner. The interesting thing is that it only does this once I restart my computer after installing windows updates or running a program that requires a reboot. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Uhm not really a 'problem' perse. If a manufacturer (whomever made the computer) decided the 'logo' should look like that then it can do that (the Windows Logo is just a animated background like your desktop and can be modified).

Now if stuff 'in the bottom left corner of the screen' no matter what it is (Word, a desktop icon, the toolbar at the bottom, etc.) has a 'double image' as your saying, then your likely have corrupted video drivers (we would hope) or a dying /defective video card.

I have my own custom built computer and the GPU is the ASUS R9 280x Direct CU II TOP. Is there anyway to fix this issue, or tests that I can perform to see if the issue persists?

Do a restore back to before the problem happened, but note the 'PROGRAMS AFFECTED' listed so you can track down the issue. I HIGHLY doubt it was a Windows Update, or MASS amount of people would be having this issue as well and ALL would be complaining about it. If that doesn't fix it, then yeah you can wipe the drive with DBAN (yes you lose your data unless you use Windows Easy Transfer to backup your data to a external drive) to wipe the drive then reinstall the whole thing all over again.

If you had this 'custom built' for you, maybe you should contact whomever made it too and have them come over to fix it if you feel a bit out of your depth with these technical instructions.
