An image of the select box is frozen on a file and remains in the same place om the screen when I move view. I am unable to clear it. The select box still works. The image of the box, from a previous selection, remains on the screen in edit & object modes, and when I close & reopen the file. I hope someone can help, I've spent days working on this file.

The issue can be seen in the images below, the white dashes below the 'A'.

What you did is selecting a Render Region, shortcut is Ctrl+B. This helps to only view certain parts of the viewport rendered after switching to rendered view in order to only have some parts/region of interest in that moment fully rendered. This can as well be used when rendering through the camera.

To clear the Render Region press Ctrl+Alt+B.
