Just for a test, try installing Firefox and see if the problem occurs. If not then it is IE specific. At least that would provide an area to concentrate on.

If it still occurs then it's a global Windows 7 problem.

I think I'd rather live with it than to install any other browser. They bring in so much crap and it's hard to get rid of all their bits later.
I suspect it's my rig, I don't see other users having this issue.

As a test, try a lower resolution, see what it does.

Hmm, that was strange Rich. I changed to 1600x900 and 1366x768 then back to 1920x1080 and now the display seems fine.
