How to get rid of focus rectangle in Windows 8.1 64 Bit?

  1. Hi. I recently reinstalled Windows 8.1 and noticed this white box around a tile or setting when I hover over it. It's like accessiblity or something but I didn't change any settings than what I usually do. This has never happened on any older Installations before. I think it may have imported a setting from my Microsoft account but I'm not sure. There is another person who is experiencing the same situation like me but they didn't find a solution I think. How do I remove these "autofocus" selection borders from the Windows 8.1/8 tile screen? - Super User

    Here is a screenshot of my problem:

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks. :)

    Also the dotted rectangle is really annoying and I would like to get rid of it permanently. Refreshing desktop and restarting PC is just a temporary fix. I tried the universal remover but it didn't work after I restarted. The focus rectangle was still there. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    It's Bitdefender 2015 causing it.
