you're using the nitrous driver. this highlight actually occurs on specular (or shinny) materials in the real world. if you change from nitrous to direct3d, (customize, prefrences, viewports, choose driver) it will fix this

thanks a million, im gonna try and change the settings later. Just one other issue im having and that is that when I render simple objects that are positioned within other objects in the viewport they appear outside of the object when rendered. Is this the same issue of changing the settings or is this something different? I have attached an image to explain a little better.

any help is once again appreciated.
