Image swirls and blurs whenever I move cursor

I never saw this before, I think you need an exorcist. :) 



Strange thing is that the part where my cursor is hovering above isn't distorted.


I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it didn't fix it.

Seems to be a problem with gaphic and/or mouse drivers. Try an OLDER graphic card driver.

Yep, you're right. I uninstalled my current driver and the distortion managed to stop, however once I updated my drivers, the distortion came back.

I've seen this before.


You probably have some kind of special antialiasing mode enabled in your graphics driver's control panel. Sometimes this is fun for games, but since desktop apps are using things like Direct3D now (and Paint.NET does via Direct2D), it often affects them too.


So you can turn that off in your graphics driver control panel, or you can disable hardware acceleration in paint.net from its Settings dialog.
