    Periodically I get a load of rubbish (see pics) appear on my screen while playing. It is not in any language I recognise and sometimes obscures half my screen. It does not appear to be game related as it does not show in the journal. It can take minutes to dissolve and is a damn nuisance. Does anyone know how or where it originates and/or how to stop it?.

    Below is a close up of the letters, it means nothing to me.

    So as I said any ideas?.

    This has happened in the past, see here:

    Not sure if there is a solution in there, but at least there are some cute dog pictures.

    the question is does everyone see that message at the same time or just you?
    perhaps a spam of high asc characters that wont show in journal but does show on screen?

    I almost always get it when I start to fill my vendors and sometimes just when I'm vendor shopping but not limited to this time.
