Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Hi, I have been experiencing the same thing in Outlook and at times in Word as well. I have just installed the latest Nvidia Vista 32 bit driver to replace the Windows 7 one and the problem seems to have stopped. Maybe it is just a glitch in the Nvidia Beta driver.?

I got similar artifacts when I installed 7 for the first time. After exiting games or while running a video it looked kinda like yours. For me it was also the graphics driver windows installed. Installing the latest Vista driver (ATI) solved the problem.
Maybe the WU drivers aren't 100% reliable just yet.
