    Hello and welcome to the windows7forums.

    Could you please post your computer specification under the UserCP at the left hand top of the page to make it easier for us to troubleshoot.

    Your make and model of video card would be of great help.

    And where did you obtain the drivers?

    We still need more info on your graphics card.

    Go to Start > Run and type msinfo32, expand the Components section and click the Display tab.

    I can't see any reason why IE8 would be causing problems.

    If you don't use it, you can uninstall it by going to Start > Run, and type optionalfeatures, then uncheck the Internet Explorer checkbox.
