Can you tell me why my computer has decided that there should be five columns of little purple lines running up and down the screen?

As you can see from the picture
my computer is acting up. I came home today and turned on the computer and these lines started appearing. They don't appear all at once. Some pop up, and then some more and then there's these five columns of lines on my screen. But if I switch to another tab in firefox or open up another program they go away, but they quickly come back.
My computer is running XP Pro SP2, my graphics card is a Radeon X1300. The driver is the Catalyst Control Center. I did a system restore to Monday but the problem wasn't fixed. I thought maybe it was the monitor but I hooked up my tv to the computer and they show up there to. Also, yesterday, I downloaded, but did not install some Microsoft updates.
Anybody know what's going on or how to fix it? Thanks.
