Default Stripes in Windows

I hope you guys can help me. I have no idea how to find a fix myself as I haven't a clue how to search (under what terms) for this problem in google.

About two months ago Windows suddenly started experiencing this weird problem. Sometimes, upon starting up (or after deactivating the screen saver), there seems to be a problem with the display of Windows. There are either horizontal or vertical 'stripes' all over the screen. Sometimes in addition programs seem to 'lag', like previously selected Spotify faintly remaining on display despite opening a Microsoft Edge window.

The appearance seems completely random, altough one time it kept popping up after opening a spoiler section on a forum.

It usually fixes itself after going to the ctrl+alt+del screen, or opening full-window programs like YouTube/VLC full screen or starting a game. Sometimes it's so bad only rebooting the PC will get rif of it.

It feels a bit like a driver problem, but I updated my video card driver to the latest version and that didn't help.

Here's an example of how it looks:
