Make sure You Display device driver and system software are up to date and you do not have use Legacy Compositing performance section checked. Reset all Photoshop Tools.

 

Make sure your move tool option bar is not set to show Transform controls.

 

If this does not fix your issue try resetting your Photoshop.  Extras should not be part of your image and the should be able to be hidden and set not to be displayed. Are you using a PC or Mac?

The extras showing look like the Move show Transform Controls.  Or you are Transforming a active selection.  The shortcut Ctrl+H will hide these usually you want to see the transform controls what you are transforming.  Hiding the controls and the selection would make it very difficult to make the transform you are currently doing.  If that is the screen  capture is for, We can not see your Photoshop UI  so we can only guess at what you  are currently doing in Photoshop.

Thanks, but the shortcut Ctrl + H doesn't do anything... I even went to "Show Extra Options" and unchecked them all, and STILL I see that transformation box 😞

Hey! Hello! THIS was the reason! It wasn't the "Extra" I had selected "Show transform controls"
Thanks for the follow-up!

That was also driving me crazy. 
Why the hell does Adobe decide to just 'switch this random thing on' ?!
