    Hi there, I've been searching the web, forums and documentation (without success) of MSI's Afterburner application to try to figure out how to solve my issue.

    The problem is that after first enabling the application's on-screen display function, I cannot disable a graph which appears to show GPU workload in fullscreen 3D applications (but does not show up in screenshots). The graph is partially transparent, and consists of two vertical parallel white lines, with SLI written to the right of them at the top, and extending up and down equally from the vertical midpoint of the screen a green bar, contained within these two lines, appearing to correlate in length with apparent gpu workload.

    No hardware or software was changed at the time of the first appearance of this graph. In attempts to correct this issue, I have tried disabling Afterburner's on-screen display function (and the correlated process and windows service), uninstalling MSI Afterburner, performing a System Restore in windows (win 7 x64) to a point earlier in time than the first usage of the on-screen display function, restarting windows, and updating graphics card drivers (2x MSI nvidia gtx460 in SLI) all to no avail.

    I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could offer, as this is driving me nuts (the overlay is on top of every game I play, and is incredibly annoying) - all assistance will be much appreciated!

    thanks again
