Hi, I've been having a problem for a few days now where I keep seeing these odd flickering squares on my screen. They seem to come up when I'm browsing the internet, and move in position when I scroll.

I think this is a graphics card related issue, but if it isn't please could a moderator move me to an appropriate section.

Hi have you tried updating or reinstalling the video driver could you also give the full spec of your machine ie desktop or laptop make and model if a custom build then make and model of

Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.

I have got a similar problem on my Acer Aspire One AO751h. I don't exactly know how to
describe it but it's very close to this! They're flickering rectangles! Now white though. I
tried to get a screenshot but the screenshot is normal! I just upgraded my OS to Windows 7
Home Basic two days ago. I think the problem started after I installed the Intel Graphics
Media Accelerator 500, which is the latest version of the driver. The funny thing is that
it happens only in the taskbar and the top part of IE9! And, it flickers to the way I
scroll!!! It doesn't happen all the time, but most of the time! It even gets to my Start
Menu. I don't want to uninstal the driver 'cause without it my resolution goes upto on
1024x78, which sucks! What do I do!?!
System Configuration:
Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU Z520 @ 1.33GHz

Is there a way to hide icons in the taskbar?
I put a program on my computer called LogMeIn. It gives me remote access from my phone to my computer. I want to be able to monitor what people do on the computer when I'm not there. But this program sits in the taskbar so if they see it they'll probably close it out. Is there a way to make this...

[SOLVED] Pinning to taskbar
Windows 7 Ultimate SP 1 New install as of today Is is possible to pin a vbs script to the taskbar? I have a vbs script that opens a putty connection to a server. The reason I use that as opposed to a batch file, is that it keeps the command prompt from opening in the background. I have tried...

All icons on explorer, taskbar, and desktop are not showing anymore.
After installing a new theme, I noticed later on that all the icons on the taskbar, explorer, and the desktop were missing. The programs all work fine, with the title showing, but explorer is very laggy and it's incredibly hard to navigate through my picture folder without thumbnails. And for...
