Flash Flicker Or Stutter In Ie7 And 8


When i visit a website using ie with any flash content in it the page loads and the flash window displays the image but the image flickers  noticeably as it updates at a rate of about 5 to 6 a second. Even modest minor motion animations on webpages will flicker. I also experience flickering of the flash content while passing the pointer over an ie page with flash content.
 
I have uninstalled and reinstalled flash. Same problem uninstalled and then upgraded flash to ver. 10 - still the same problem. This problem was present with flash 9. 2. X. X and remains with a new reinstall/upgrade to ver. 10. 0. 42. 34.
 
In ie internet options i have done a full restore in advanced settings and reset internet explorer settings – still the same problem.
 
I previously had ie 7 running and started having this problem after doing some massive upgrades on drivers and software on this system. I was well down this road when i first noticed this problem. A restore was not really an option. After trying to uninstall flash and reinstalling it and doing a repair on ie without any change in the problem i finally upgraded to ie 8. I am still experiencing the same flicker or stutter problem with ie 8. As might be expected any flash content that shows up in the windows live messenger control window also has the same issue.
 
System:
Winxp pro sp 3. 0 32 bit (current on all critical updates)
Msie 8. 0. 6001. 18702 (latest version)
Window live messenger  2009 (build 14. 0. 8089. 726)
Flash player 10. 0. 42. 34  (latest version - non-beta)
Ati radeon 9200 – running ati catalyst v 1. 2. 2314. 20337 (latest version)
 
There is a different install of the flash plug-in/player for ie than the one firefox etc use. Both are separately installed while running the respective browsers and they seem to recognize the appropriate install.
 
When running any of the following browsers i do not have the ie problem.
 
Firefox 3. 5. 7
Safari 4. 0. 4
Opera 10. 1 (smoothest of all)
Chrome 4. 0. 249. 89 (38071)
 
When running ie or firefox, etc, i can visit http://www.Adobe.com/software/flash/about/ which does a installed flash status and version detection.
 
*All* browsers report:
"You have version 10, 0, 42, 34 installed"
  
Because of the nature of my work using ie is a necessary evil otherwise i would simply go to one of the other browsers which have already demonstrated themselves to be trouble free.
  
I have spent the last several days searching the web for solutions and have yet to find one that solves the problem. I have the most current video display adapter drivers and have tried different display resolutions and refresh rates without any success. The fact that i don't have any problems in firefox, safari , etc and they all use a common (with the exception of ie which has its own) flash plugin/player leads me to believe that the problem lies with the configuration of ie.

Audio Stutter Problem

I bought a new computer in october of 2009, with a win 7 64-bit os, a realtek audio system on the motherboard, and i added a high-end nvidia card for gameplay purposes. I am having the same audio stutter problem that a lot of other people are having. I have installed every realtek update from
2. 33 to 2. 40 and none of them have worked. I've tried installing some drivers from vista, but windows won't let me.

I totally love win7, except for this one small niggling problem. While looking around some of the other windows forums, it seems that the general train of thought is that the issue is something to do with windows 7 itself, and i would agree, having tried several driver-based solutions. A friend of mine was on the beta test for windows 7, and he hasn't had this error.

Screen Flicker

When running outlook 2007, firefox (3. 5. 6 and 3. 5. 7), on windows 7 home prem, i get a very fast flicker on the screen. It flashes the desktop very briefly. This happen typically when i am browsing  or doing something. I also run phoenix (a flight simulator) and then it happens more often say 1 x 20 sec. I have been able to see that in the top menu bar i see "not responding" for maybe a 10th of a second. I also get this in ie8. I had a nvida 9500gt and have exchanged this for a ati radeon hd4670, and still have the same problem. It seems to be app independent.

Win 7 64-bit Causes Taskbar To Flicker

I bought windows 7 64bit, did a clean reformat of my dell precision 690 workstation, and installed it. Unfortunately, i've been dealing with a flickering issue that occurs whenever i open any kind of window whether it be explorer, ie, or a program window. The flickering occurs mainly on the outside borders of the windows. It is also important to note that it is difficult to type in the url text field as the flickering causes my typing to "reset" almost as if the flickering is somehow interpreting me using my mouse to click on it, highlighting the text.

Below are my workstations specs:

Two dual core intel xenon processor 5060 3. 20ghz 2 x2 mb l2 1066

Graphics card: 256mb pcle x 16 nvidia quadro fx 3500, dual dvi or dual vga or dvi + vga

Memory: 10gb ddr2 sdram fbd memory, 533mhz ecc (4 dimms)

Cd-rom dvd read write devices: 48 x cd-rw/dvd combo with cyber link power dvd

Hard drive configuration: c1 all sata drives, non-raid, 1 or 2 drive total config.

Boot hard drive: 250gb sata 3. 0g b/s 7200 rpm hard drive with 8mb data burst cache

Hard drive internal controller option: sata/sas integrated card -for connecting internal hard drives

I've aleady downloaded the latest drivers from nvidia, which hasn't fixed the issue. I also downloaded directx 11, which has actually made the issue worse.

Office 2003 Programs Flicker After Upgrade

Since upgrading to windows 7 home premium from vista home premium, excel 2003, word 2003, and access 2003 from office 2003 professional sp3 have what i would call a refresh flicker. I'm running a dell intel core 2 duo with a samsung syncmaster monitor and had no "flicker" problems prior to upgrade. I tried the compatibility troubleshooter with no success. Other non-office programs work fine. Any suggestions?

Mouse Control And Screen Flicker Problems

Windows 7 mouse control and screen flicker problems with microsoft applications such as word 2007, iexplorer 8, microsoft games (solitaire, freecell etc. ) I just upgraded from vista ultimate 64 to windows 7 ultimate 64 and microsoft applications that worked perfectly with vista are acting strange with win7.

I first noticed this issue while playing solitaire. It starts out ok, but after a short time, when i try to move cards around, i can select the card with my mouse, but i can't drag it. It won't move. When this happens, the solitaire window flashes or flickers once or twice and the solitaire icon in the taskbar is jumping sideways to the right and back again. This problem is documented in a thread on the games portion of this forum. Eventually i can move the card, but the problem happens over and over.

At first i thought it was just an issue with solitaire, but today when i was working on a word 2007 document i had very similar issues when i was trying to adjust indents by dragging the indent stops on the ruler. The same type of behavior occurred i.e. Screen flicker and could not drag the stop. I have the word shortcut pinned to the taskbar and it wasn't jumping sideways.

Similar problem trying to resize browser windows in explorer8. I can grab the window and start stretching, but the screen will flash and i drop the handle on the window. What i have tried so far is a clean boot, disabling start up programs and ending all but microsoft processes using msconfig. This didn't change a thing. I have the latest win7 ati video card driver (radeon hd 4890) and win7 mouse and keyboard drivers (microsoft wireless desktop elite). Batteries are good inthe mouse and keyboard. Any help with this would be appreciated. Any ideas?

After Upgrade To Win7 Office 2003 Programs Flicker

Office 2003 programs have a "flicker" when running in an upgrade to windows 7 home premium.converted from windows vista home premium to windows 7 home premium on a dell intel core two duo. Everything works well except that in office 2003 sp3, word, excel, and access have what i would describe as a "refresh flicker".

It appears that there is a continuous refresh of the page selected that causes various parts of the page to "flicker". In addition, the cursor has the continuous running circle, instead of a pointer or arrow. Tried the compatibility wizard, and it did not work. This did not happen in vista. Do you have a suggestion on what is causing this?

Desktop Icons Flicker On Starting Ms Office Application

This is not a huge problem, it is just irritating, but i would like to know the answer to it if possible. I am running windows 7 home premium on a new pc and after running up my pc, the first time i start an ms office 2010 application the desktop icons flicker or turn white and then re-establish themselves in a second or two; working isn't affected and the shortcuts still work. This only happens the first time you start any one of the ms office 2010 applications; word; xl; powerpoint, or publisher.

Once any one of those applications has been run, for example word, it doesn't happen again when you start another ms office application, for example xl. This doesn't happen when i start any of my other installed software applications, only the ms office 2010 ones. I upgraded to 2010 from 2007 trial version which was pre-installed on the pc and don't recall it happening when i was running the earlier version, could it be something to do with having upgraded to 2010?

Windows Media Player 12 Makes Screen Flicker In Programs

Windows media player 12 in windows 7 makes the screen "flicker" in some programs. I recently installed windows 7 home premium (x64 bit version) on my main computer, and so far am loving it. Recently however, as i've reinstalled many of the programs i had on my previous xp install, i started noticing this strange white flickering in some full-screen programs which seemed fairly random.

The game space empires: v, published by strategy first, is the most striking example i have found. Changing the program to run in windowed mode fixes the problem, but then i'm stuck with a window at 1024 x 768 resolution (can't be changed), which is a bit hard to see on my native monitor resolution of 1680 x 1050, not to mention aero cuts down on the performance by a fairly large chunk.

The problem seemed to come and go randomly until i noticed one common variable: i always had wmp open and playing music in the background whenever it happened. Closing wmp and running the program solved the problem every time. I've tried reinstalling wmp, reinstalling the other program, trying every graphical option in the program, all to no avail.

I'm using windows media player version 12. 0. 7600. 16415, and windows 7 x64 bit with all updates installed. This isn't the first major problem i've encountered with this version of wmp either, i can count at least 3 others, but nothing as annoying or disruptive as this.

Cannot Upgrade To Ie7

I am trying to upgrade our church's computer to ie7 and have tried just about every idea i've read online. Downloading and installing the ie7 upgrade loses my internet connection. I get the "cannot display page" error. I have tried it with no firewall and with all add-ons disabled. I tried installing xp - sp3 upgrade today and lost connection with ie6. As soon as i uninstall ie 7 and xp - sp3 - everything works again. The connection diagnostic tells me three ports are blocked due to the firewall - but it's disabled. Ive written down everything i can find (ip address, gateway, etc. ) And nothing appears to change after the upgrade - i just can't get back to the internet. Has anyone else dealt with this problem?

Currently internet explorer 7 resides on the c drive. To conserve space i wish to move (or uninstalled-reinstall) internet explorer to the d drive.
 
Does anyone have any idea how to do that?

Ie7 And Ie8 Graphics Do Not Load

On my logon to the internet each day using the msn homepage, the graphics do not load initially until i refresh the page. It does not happen again until i have closed the homepage for a period of time and come back to it later to log on to the net again - as before everything on the homepage loads except the graphics until i refresh the page? I have just downloaded ie8, but the same problem was occurring last week when i had ie7.

I am using windows vista ultimate 2007 sp1 on a dell optiplex 755, intel core 2 duo with 2 gigs ram and 32 bit os - not a major problem, but it is an annoying.

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.

Ie7 - Cannot Manage Add-ons

I have a problem concerning ie 7 add-ons. I can't open the tab that customize the ie add-ons, neither through ie -> tools, or control panel -> internet options -> programs. I just doesn't open up when i click it (no error message, nothing).

My internet browsing works fine, with all add-ons activated, the problem is just i can't see the tab to see what's installed and change their status. I'm on a win xp sp3, mcafee av since a year ago (previously norton av). I don't know exactly when the problem started, but when i installed ie 7 i remember clearly it was ok. I remember my laptop became infected with a pen-drive virus, which was solved time ago.could that have affected this feature?

Ie7 Internet Options Will Not Open

I want to upgrade to ie8 but each time it tells me that the install has brought forward an error from ie7. My ie7 will not open internet options, thus i cannot "easily" disable add-ons, etc. I have gone so far as to completely re-installing xp and sp3, re-installed ie7 (or ie8) but continue to have the same problem when i try to open ie7 internet options; the sub-screen temporarily flashes and closes (without any error message).

I have a laptop on the same home lan running vista and ie7 but i don't want to upgrade it to ie8 until my desktop will successfully install it. Most of the on-line fixes keep pointing me to ie8 pages. I could sure use a simple fix that does not entail modifying the registry.

Not Able To Print Directly From Ie7 Or Ie8

Having problems getting computers to print directly from the internet. 4 computers on a network (total of 5 workstations and 1 server). Mix of ie 7 and 8. When trying to print directly from internet in ie. The browser page shows an error and refreshes without printing. When using firefox and trying to print directly from internet, the browser is shut down and has to be restarted. Have tried running with no add-ins. Same problem. Have tried to run "sfc /scannow" no change.

I am starting to think there may be a corrupted system file somewhere. I don't know if it is affecting it or not, but also avg free anti virus is running on these computers. All are running windows xp home with service pack 3. The computers are all relatively new. Approx 6-9 months old. Any answers?

Ie7 Closes When Clicking A List Box

Ie 7 closes when a specific list box on a page is clicked. This does not happen for any other list box and only happens on certain machines. The shop runs xp pro sp2 and uses ie 7 across the board. The same users can log onto a different machine and click the same list box (or any list box for that matter) and the problem does not persist on that machine. Security settings have been set to medium-low on the machines with the issue so this doesn't seem to be the issue. Is there a setting or other ap that could be causing this issue for these three machines?

Ie7 Not Handling Excel Files Properly

With ie7 i am at a website where i can export an excel document. I had 2000 installed and didn't have this problem. I now have office 2007 installed and have an issue where it will give me a prompt stating "the file you are trying to open is in a different format than specified. " If i hit yes it will then give me a user login page as though i am just about to login to the website. However, if i hit no, it will prompt the same message again but with a different file name. If i hit yes to that it works fine.

If i try this through firefox, however, i don't have a problem at all which leads me to believe it's an issue with ie. I tried the registry hack to suppress the error message and when i do it'll simply open up an instance of excel with the user/pass dialog boxes asking me to login.

Strange Sound When Ie7 Loads New Url

There is a strange sound intermittently being broadcast from ie7, it usually occurs when i type a new url into the window, but sometimes the noise occurs when the window is active. I tried a number of antivirus programs and everything is negative. I changed the control panel sound from blank to windows default. The sound still occurs as before, it sounds like a kazoo blast. I have a screen capture with audio, you can here the sound at http://www.Youtube.com/watch?V=jcvyowsqnta

Can you tell me what sound file format internet explorer uses for it's various prompts? (Wav, mp2, wma ) and which default directory path?

Ie7 Refuses To Open - Net Framework Issue

Via email a ms tech support advised me last week to uninstalled all .net framework components using win installer clean-up download which i did. Then download the .net framework packages. None of the downloads will install. Some instructions i've used seem to require ie for downloads but my ie is inoperable right now. Ie will flash for a brief instant then go hidden.

This self-help via ms links odyssey began when i tried to install update .net framework sp1 and .net fw 3. 5 family update v 2. 0-3. 5(kb951847)x86 and it always fails to install. 3 days ago i was told in an email that an xp support professional would contact me w/i 72 hrs. That has not happened. My whole system is a mess. How do i unravel this mess and get back to where i was? Also, system restore will not restore to an earlier date.

Ie7 Blank Pop Ups When Opening A File

I am a tech services employee, and i have a very interesting situation with one of our users here. Originally, the problem was that when the user would go to download a file from an internet site (usually, it was an office document), ie would freeze and crash on him. We decided to upgrade him to version 7 of ie (ie 8 at this time is not approved for installation on our corporate pcs because they are not compatible with some of our web applications).

The installation was successful, and the user is able to download and open the documents from the internet, however, when he does, and extra blank window appears and does not automatically go away. It's more of an inconvenience at this point, but i was wondering if this issue can be fixed?

Ie6 / Ie7 Compatibility Issue With Xml Files

I have a strange issue going on. I have inherited some code from a previous programmer, and he builds an xml file and pushes that to ie for printing. It's been fine in ie6, but now that we're rolling out ie7 to our workstations, it no longer works. It seems to be in an endless loop, and it will display some of the report, then that disappears, and something else will pop up later, and this just goes on until i kill ie via task manager.

The really odd thing is that in testing, if i stick the file on the web server and point ie7 at it, it works properly, but if i double-click the html page or point ie7 to it on the network drive, it locks up. Ny ideas what i'm missing here?The file in question is at http://www.co. Tillamook. Or. Us/gov/ois/testing/genericreceipt.htm
