This issue is the result of a system variable known as ANNOMONITOR being set incorrectly.



Set the ANNOMONITOR system variable to 0:


Type AnnoMonitor in the Command line. When prompted to set a value, type 0 (that is, zero – not the letter O). Press Enter.


The boxes should disappear from view.
