Windows 7: Live messenger blurry glitch/Megaten issue

Live messenger blurry glitch/Megaten issue

Early this morning I had a display driver crash while msn live messenger was on, now this would not be an issue except I now have a serious annoyance with the program. As seen in the submitted picture it i all blurry like someone dropped a watercolor filter over it and it becoems vaguely readable when the cursor is hovering over an area. I do not know how to fix this, can somebody please help me. I have tried a complete uninstall and fresh reinstall after a defrag and scandisc between the two, and that did not help any to fix this issue.

Also the game by Aeria Games Megaten is causing consistent driver display crashes, and so far all reccomended fixes are failing me. It is dropping the game to black screen where the game runs just without graphics. It happens every five to ten minutes, and YET the game is listed assafe and compatible in 64 bit windows 7 on the list on these forums. However when it comes to windows 7 itself it says it has compatibility issues, is there a way to fix this problem too? Thus this message is two fold, and if I have to submit detailsfrom directX I will upon request as this problem is quite common with Megaten and many people have had this apparently. I have tried rollingb ack display drivers, and reinstalling current drivers. Even removing the control panel in case it is a fix for two other errors on the game, and it works. Otherwise it makes the game virtually unplayable, which kinda bugs me.

Please help me as this is the best windowsseven forum I know of, and the Aeria games forum is of absolutely no use to me now.

Not sure if it is supported on the 5570 (MLAA), but have a look at post #4 here,

Text looks as if water has been poured on it

and see if that is what is causing it.

I have the same issue, but after read stormy gave the link, the problem fixed. Great thanks.

"Since you have a 6850 make sure MLAA (Morphological filtering) is turned off. It tends to mess with 2D apps when enabled - making some things look blured." it works for me.
