Laggy text in IE8

When i use IE8 on my W7 32 OS my text is very laggy and my scrolling is very choppy. It seems like im typing too fast for the computer, lol. But i dont know what to do.

All drivers are up to date.
Q6600 Quad core
4gb RAM
2x 9600 GT video cards
Internet Speed is 25mb+

The problem only occurs in IE8, not in word, not in notepad. I dont want to change browsers if i dont have to.
Thanks for the help!

This happens on my school computers.

My only suggestion would be to repair IE.

Does this happen in the x64 version of IE as well?

And if you disable those add-ons? Does it improve performance?

To repair: Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Reset

I guess you figured it out. Glad to help.

I thought that might also have been the problem (thanks Keg for mentioning it).

You may want to uninstall that toolbar then.
