Website Blinks When I Move The Mouse


I have ie8 x64, and windows vista home x64. Ever since installing ie8 via windows update, i have had a very annoying problem. Lots of websites, including this page where i am submitting this question, blink or flash when i move the mouse. Just the page and elements on it, not the ie interface or windows task bar. I have read some confusing things as to whether this is an adobe flash player problem with ie8 x64 or just a glitch with ie8, but as it is doing it on this page, which from the source does not use adobe flash, i am not sure it is the problem.

Mouse Cursor Wont Move

Today i did something really stupid. I was in an unsupervised chatroom earlier and another person and i got into it and i could definently tell that i angered him. I left the chatroom and about 15 mins later im on another website and the mouse cursor suddenly freezes and will not scroll on the page. Everything else seems to be working fine. So i restart the computer, the mouse is working when the windows password page comes up, so i type in the password and that page loads and then the main page comes up (the one with all the programs etc) and as soon as that pops up that is when the mouse cursor freezes and will not scroll or move.

Everything else continues to upload and seems to be working fine. So i restart the computer and put it in safe mode and the mouse works fine moves and everything. Anyways, the bottom line is i think that other person sent me a virus or something that wont allow my cursor to move in regular mode. What should i do? Also, i cannot get the sound to work on my computer in safe mode.

The bottom right volume icon says "audio service not running" and i would like it running in safe mode until i can get this cursor problem resolved. Any help is greatly appreciated and please explain in laymans terms because i know absolutely nothing about computers. Thank you so much for your time and have a beautiful day.

Mouse Doesn't Move - Screen Goes Blank

Windows 7 ultimate 64bit seem to just 'lock up', by 'lock up' i mean the mouse (razer mamba) doesn't move, the keyboard (logitech g19)'s screen goes black, the 'windows key' doesn't work, the keys don't light up and alt+ctrl+del don't work, my game pad (logitech g13) doesn't work, webcam (logitech orb) doesn't work or light up.

I have tried as many things as i can think of, re-installing the os, putting my computer at stock settings (i had gpu, cpu and ram overclocked), re-installing the os, i have disabled the 'usb selective suspend setting' i have tried reverting to the vista 64bit drivers, 'checking' the computer memory, replacing the hard drive with a new one, tried doing this 'clean boot' thing, still no luck.

Magnifier On Win 7 With Ati Graphics Cards Flashes / Blinks

I've been dealing with this since i built my new development workstation for work. I rely on the magnifier as i have bad eyes. I have a triple monitor setup with a 24" in the center and a 20" on either side. I just built a new core i7 workstation with two ati 7000 series cards. The ati cards and drivers seem to be causing a problem with magnifier where parts of the image blink in and out of existence in the docked magnified image.

I have the latest drivers from ati. Here is a video i shot that shows the problem:-

http://www.Youtube.com/watch?V=vw-7ggarvuk

One suggestion was that it was maybe ati's power saving features causing the card to run too slowly and causing the issue. I have confirmed this with another system like mine in another office, his where 4000 series cards. This does not appear to be a problem in vista (but it could be that the vista machine i tried had older ati drivers).

As i said, i've tried getting help from ati with 0 luck. They apparently don't care.

Note: i'm actually running server 2008 r2 with the desktop experience installed and aero turned on. This is not a problem with aero off. I like aero with the magnifier (with nvidia hardware anyways) as it's much smoother and faster. I've seen this happen in windows 7 as well though and to my knowledge the code bases re: aero are the same.

This configuration works fine with nvidia cards and drivers, i.e. No flashing / blinking. Please don't tell me the solution is to switch back to nvidia hardware, that would suck.

Unable To Sign In To A Website

A problem has just started in the last few days where i can't sign in to a website i have done so before many times. It's www.Findmypast.co.uk .

I can load the home page but when i click to sign in it simply comes back to the home page and i can't get any further.

I have cleared the cache including cookies but still no luck.
I have the site listed in the trusted zone.
I have contacted the site and they say it is to do with ie8 so can't help.
I can get through on mozilla but don't want to keep swapping browsers and would like to stay with ie8.

Cannot Access Bank Website

Customer having trouble with our web site after getting new computer. I have a customer that has a new computer and tries to log in with his id and password onto our bank site and an error about his browser keeps popping up and not allowing him to access his account information. He has a dial up connection with netzero. I am at a loss with this and he is able to access his account on his work computer just fine. We have been trying to solve this issue for 2 weeks now. I (he) really needs some help with this before he goes to another bank and experiences the same problem.

Cannot Stay Signed In To A Website

First, my apologies if this takes a while to explain. We have 2 laptops. Mine runs vista and ie8. My partner's was originally running vista when he bought it last spring. He recently had it upgraded to windows 7 (64-bit version) and ie8. There is a website that we both sign on to with the same user id/password. I have no problems. He continually gets bounced out and it acts like he never signed in. He tries to look at something and it says he is not a member and to please sign in. Or it says he has been idle too long and to please sign in again (when he's been right there trying to click on something).

Every time he tries to click on something, it bounces him out. You can imagine the frustration this is causing. He did not have this problem until his pc was upgraded to windows 7 and ie8. Has anyone else experienced this? Just for full disclosure this is an adult website and he doesn't have problems with any other website.

Website Screen Is Filling Monitor

Website screen is filling monitor - instead of having access @ top & bottom of screen to other websites/programs. I've lost the screen i usually have - where you have a top & bottom showing all the websites you have open, and on the bottom, outlook, word, etc. None of that is showing up, i just have one big view of my one and only current website page that i'm viewing. How do i get my other setting back where i can access everything?

Website Text Size Very Small

I got a new dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason, all websites appear with text in a really small font size. I've tried increasing font size and even set it to appear in largest text size. The problem is, then it's way too big and looks cartoonish. I also set it to make pages appear in 125% and 150%, which is also way too big and distorts the page.

I also lowered page resolution, but that doesn't work because the system has it set at the max, which is the suggested setting. Any ideas as to why windows 7 and internet explorer and firefox looks so different than xp or vista, etc?

Ie7 Not Receiving Website Content

Running windows xp, using mozilla firefox as main browser and avr virus protection - no problems here at all. I originally installed ie8 but every time i tried to open would get "data execution prevention" message which would shut me down. Eventually set waiver for ie8 but same result.

Eventually removed ie8 and installed ie7. Now program opens but after typing any site address in address bar, tab appears with site name (eg. "Msn"0 but no content on page. On all occasions (whatever site i try to visit) it seems to be trying to contact "127. 0. 0. 1"

Is there a solution or should i simply forget about ie altogether. Problem is that the reason that i am using avr anti virus is that i need ie to install mcafee anti virus.

Website Links Incorrect Operation

I am having several problems with my windows 7 oem on a newly purchased dell desktop commuter and a windows 7 upgrade from vista on a dell laptop. Every time i go to the windows 7 pages and ask a question about one of the problems (like the fact that settings change back to default, sound, mouse, etc. ) I am directed to a page that has answers for windows vista. That does me no good obviously, and so i become frustrated and wonder about the product which will not perform successfully and the proper availability of help.

Website Member Login Problem

I have membership to a football website i.e i have been supplied with a member user name and password. When i go the log-in page and put my details in and hit log-in, the user name and password i have entered just disappear and i cannot access the subscriber only content. The webhost has checked my log-in details from his computer and can navigate the website. Why won't my log-in work on my computer. I use internet explorer 7 and have no problems logging into ebay, hotmail etc. Is there something that needs to be enabled? The webhost can't replicate the problem, so can't really help me. He says it must be a fault on my computer. Any ideas?

Upgrade Option Program Website Error

I bought a copy of windows vista home premium 64x. When i go to the website and put in my product key it says i do not have a valid copy for update. That is jus tthe thing, i bought vista home premium 64 just to upgrade. I know it is valid because i bought the package from compusa brand new on 10/2/2009. I get validated updates and i have my copy registered. Any tips on how to get the website to accept my valid copy? I used caps and dashes exactly how it looks on my sticker.

I tried three times and then had to wait for two hours to try again. I can not get it to work. I am frustrated because i want my free copy. I paid for it when i bought my specific brand of vista. I bought the operating system "in the box". Please let me know what i should do.

Note; i did not buy the software from a computer manufacturer, i bought the system in the box. I realize this means i have to use the website located at; http://windows.com/upgradeoffer         however, it is not working. It keeps giving me an error screen. Help?

Stops Opening Pdf Files From Website

My customer runs this site built in frontpage and maintained by godaddy (http://courthousecowboysrunamuk.net/) about 2 weeks ago the page started freezing up after opening and closing pdf documents. Only after about 5 or more times of trying them. Random links from the site. Not the same one every-time. The customer is running xp. The problem does not occur on other sites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have disabled and re-enabled the add on in ie.

I booted with all but windows processes disabled and startup extras disabled. The problem still occurred. I made sure all windows, ie, and adobe updates were present. I tried the same on another xp pc and the same problem occurred. It does not occur on windows 7 computers. Do not have a vista in the office to try. Am going to uninstall updates from an xp computer to see if that fixes it, but any other ideas?

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

Move Win 7 Installation To C Drive

I inadvertently installed windows 7 on the recovery drive in my pc - drive d, not the c drive as it should be. I completely messed up my pc - somehow i installed windows 7 on the small recovery drive in my dell laptop - not the c drive. Now, all my software is gone and i cannot even reinstall ms office, since it forces the installation to the d drive and there is virtually no space.

All my files and photos and music are still on the c drive. How can i move the windows 7 installation to the c drive where it belongs?

Move Win 7 To A Different Hard Drive

Okay i had originally bought windows vista 64bit hp oem for my computer. Down the road i downloaded the 64-bit windows 7 while i was in university. I only had a wd 120gb drive, and i now have 50mb of empty space :( (computer is running way slow, and i need to have more space) so i bought a segate 500gb 7200rpm drive. Anyways i wanted to know, how can i install 7 onto my new drive and use my current one as a slave. My main problem is i don't have the disk for windows 7 b/c it was an upgrade, but i do have the verified serial number.

I cannot contact microsoft b/c they want to charge me 70$ just to talk to one of their support people. (Ridiculous, almost the cost of another oem). I guess the way i would like to do this is install the second hard drive and copy everything over to it, and then boot from that drive and wipe the one i'm using now. Possible?

Is It Ok To Move Backup Files / Directories?

I'm in the midsts of doing my first backup on a new laptop running windows 7 professional. I'm backing up to an external 2tb usb drive. The backup is about halfway done, and so far has created files called frank-laptop (my pc's network name) and mediaid. Bin, as well as a directory called windowsimagebackup, in the root directory of the external drive, which the pc recognizes as e:. I'd like to do some manual backups of data from other family computers to this same usb external drive. In order to keep from mixing files up, i'd like to create a new directory on the external drive to move the windows 7 backup files/directories into (say, something like "win 7 backup files").

Can i just use windows explorer to create a new directory on the external drive, and move the visible backup files/directories there? Is there anything special i need to do to let the system know where the files will now be stored? Are there any invisible files i need to worry about? Or does windows 7 itself provide some functionality i should use to relocate the backup files?

Move User Folders Off System Drive

Move user folders off system drive? Want all personal data on e, so need to move the user directories to e. Not individually, but globally. So all new users i create will have their user folder and docs on e.got a brand new notebook with win 7 home premium preinstalled. Using win 7 language. I shrank the hard drive volume to 55gb.

Made new simple volumes. I want all personal data on e, so need to move the user directories to e. Not by individually changing the location tab on dozens of folders, but globally. So all new users i create will have their user folder and docs on e from the gitgo. In xp, i could just change the "my documents" link on each desktop to go to e*. * Instead of c*. *, But with win7?

Like windows home server and most wise os installations, the system drive is isolated and a drive or 2 or 3 for everything else.get a problem? Just restore the system drive.
