Default Strange video issue.

I've got an odd problem: whenever I right click or try to delete any video file, my screen goes black for about two seconds then comes back and I can proceed as normal. This has been happening ever since I installed my 7800GT. The strangest thing is, it stopped doing this for a couple days, then started doing it again! I have the latest Nvidia Forceware installed. I'm baffled.

What kind of card did you have installed before you installed the 7800?

Did you try uninstalling the device from device manager then reinstalling?

If its an option, I would just wipe the PC.

It's not really a big deal, it doesn't seem to be doing any harm or getting any worse. I don't want to reinstall, but I'll be wiping the system at the end of this year (long time, I know) when I get a new mobo and CPU. Just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem before.
