Windows 7: Monitor dimming / dims randomly when opening web pages

Monitor dimming / dims randomly when opening web pages

When browsing in IE8, the monitor brightness randomly drops quite significantly when opening web pages, usually through links on previous web pages. This is a random occurrance, it does not happen with all web pages. However it occurs frequently enough that it becomes quite annoying and worrisome that I might have a hardware issue trying to erupt, or a virus that's screwing with my display settings...any help/insight/answers would be greatly appreciated. I'm running Windows Security Essentials which just updated and ran a scan two days ago with no alerts, I also occassionally run Spybot. I have no other operating problems, at least none that effect my use of the computer....
