Internet Explorer 8 flickers when in Aero?

So... to come straight to the point: I've been using Internet Explorer 8 (bundled with Windows 7) ever since 2009 without ANY issues whatsoever, until now... when it gets black across the toolbars and blacks out text... does anyone know why this happens only in Aero? And not Basic?

I don't have a fix, but you should upgrade to I.E.9. There are security improvements in 9, among other things. And, it may fix the problem.

Problem solved! It was the graphics driver! I downgraded my graphics driver, to the one shipped with my computer, and it works like a charm now ^^
