Windows 7: IE8 not showing whole Internet Page

IE8 not showing whole Internet Page


I have Windows 7 installed on two computers :
- A 64 bit version on an office PC
- A 32 bit version on a small netbook.

My favourite news page is this one : - Infos

The page is shown totally on my office PC, but all the red section is hidden on the netbook :

On the netbook, I already checked that the following "complentary modules" were installed and activated :
- Shockwave Flash object
- Java Plug-in

I can't find what's missing on my netbook so that the page is shown correctly.

Thanks for any help ! Regards,

It seems like a flash problem. An elementary suggestion, but have you checked that you are running the latest version of Flash?

Thank you James for your reply.

Yes, I have the latest Flash version. Just to be sure, I uninstalled the Flash Player and the Shockwave Player, and installed them again from the Adobe website :
- Adobe Flash Player
- Shockwave Player

For information, the news website is displayed normally on Firefox... but in my everyday life I prefer IE8. It must be an option somewhere, but I've compared all the options I can find in IE on my office PC and my netbook, and can't see any difference.

Hope I'll find a solution... Thanks again,

Maybe running Internet Explorer in Compatibility View will help

OK, just found the solution !!! It is so stupid !
The part I've put in red is not shown if the zoom of the page (right down corner) is not at 100%. I had put it at 90% from some times, because some pages suited better my screen like this. What a mistake ! As soon as I put it back to 100%, everything appeared on the web page.

Maybe it'll help somebody one day... Have a good weekend, and thanks again for trying to help me.
