As suggested, check for malware. Also try a System Restore to a date just before the white box first appeared, if it's only appeared in the last few days.

Run Malwarebytes, then update your antivirus program and run that also (or get a better one). If you have any trouble installing Malwarebytes, restart in safe mode, do a system restore, restart in safe mode, and then install/run Malwarebytes there.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
