How Does Windows controls Process in the ALU

Does?? the text boxes, form controls, window screens are every time processed in the alu for display, the code goes line by line into alu and creates these form controls, cant we create a hardware block for creating form controls, and also hardwired(or flash based) for 'classes of the software world' inside the cpu.

In all but the simplest systems today, the CPU does not directly draw graphical user interface elements. The CPU sends commands to the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), which does the drawing.

As far as I know, no one has ever figured out any good dedicated hardware support for object-oriented programming. Intel's iAPX 432 had dedicated hardware support for object-oriented programming but that approach turned out to be a bad idea and has since been abandoned.
