Internet Explorer 7 keeps redrawing screen on Windows XP SP2
posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 10:19 PM (Pacific)

I have IE 7 running on several WinXP Service Pack 2 computers. It works fine on some, but on one, you could hardly use it, particularly for viewing pages with a lot of components. Every time you tried to scroll, it redrew the screen, giving you an annoying flashing screen experience.

Perhaps you are thinking, "Who gives a toss? I use Firefox," but the problem is, some programs work only in IE.

Figuring this had to be a known issue, I found this page after some searching:

IE7 slow scrolling

Particularly note this part:
Try to disable visual styles (Internet Options - Advanced - Enable visual styles on buttons and controls in webpages). I did that and IE7 scrolling performance is equal to IE6.

So far it seems to work; it's not perfect, but much better than before.
