Windows 7: Odd text display

Odd text display

When I click to edit a post the text looks like this:

It also does this on any site where there is a scroll box or the page scrolls. A simple left click on the text corrects it but reappears if scrolled either direction.
After saving an edit I am unable to highlight any text on that same page without a refresh.
IE9 9.0.8

Do you have the same problem with Firefox or Chrome?

What Add-ons do you have installed in IE9?

Are you using a custom theme? If so try changing to the default to see if that helps.

Nope, just an Aero theme, all standard stuff.

Gary have you tried disabling hardware acceleration like we can do with Firefox?

See if disabling it on IE helps: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-turn-off.html

thanks Yussi, tried disabling, no joy. Here's what I saw when I went to edit a post this time.

Umm I can't think of anything else... I'll have to check if the same thing happens with my IE.
