Stablilizing desktop icons

I have dual monitors, i am using displayfusion pro and once in a while my icons on the main monitor will flicker as i open or close a browser or local window. I am running at 60hz right now.

mon 1 is HP 2311 wide LCD and AMD radeon HD7670 running at 1920 x 1080
mon 2 is HP W2072a LED same AMD running at 1600 x 900

Any ideas..

Try running both monitors at same resolution.

thanks for the reply, i assumed it would be better to take mon 1 down to meet mon 2 res rather than stress out mon2 for the larger res..

But i am typing on mon1 now that they are both 1600x900 and this mon1 is cloudy, i can still read it but the letters look almost fuzzy and not sharp at all.

Any suggestions?

UPDATE: i had heard one time somewhere that there was a way to increase mem for just icons nothing else, and that could be isolated but i could be wrong. I am using fences by stardock and its a great tool for me so i do have alot of icons on the page..

here is a screenshot of my monitors.

Try to uninstall and do a clean install of the latest drivers for your graphic card.

Use Driver Sweeper to remove the old bits of the old drivers.
