Get yourself a decent surge protector. It sounds like you monitor is taking hits from power spikes. Use isopropal alcohol and see if that dosen't help remove it better.

i dont know if its the outlets in my house or what, but i fry monitors left and right
They're called surge-protectors and Uninterrupted-Power-Supplies (UPS). They're great for those rare houses that have less than NASA-standard power systems. No one will probably know what yer talking about, thought, since no one else ever experiences power problems...

I'd be interested to know what the end result looks like for the glare-guard yer actively destroying and when we're going to hear the "oh shyt" part of this story...

Im pretty sure they are surge protector power strips.... i could be wrong though, ill have to check, and i do have plans on buying a UPS sometime soon because of all these damn hurricanes i get down here in FL, so i can at least keep it on through the short brown outs that i get all the time, i just need to find a job first. And i got the anti-glare layer almost completely off theres just this one stubborn spot on the left that im still working on, but where it did come off , the monitor actually looks better then before...
