Video card is an MSI N6600 – 256mb..
The latest graphics drivers for Windows 7/Vista, version 196.21, have caused me to do a restore back to a previous restore point. Rolling back the driver does NOT work, as IE8 still flickers after doing so.
When the mouse pointer runs across the various items in Pageflakes, Netvibes etc, the IE8 window flickers badly, and is totally unusable. As a result, I am back with version 191.07 which works perfectly..
