It’s a menu that’s supposed to say “Erase All?” Check you drivers or your hardware acceleration.

Do you mean the cube?
It’s just there in the default settings.

In blender you can set up any scene and set it up as your default - which is loaded when you start blender or say File->New (or Ctrl+X).

Set up your scene, arrange your windows, set up the preferences how you like them and press Ctrl+U.
