Since I installed IE7, I find that other programs have slower screen updates.  For example, one program where it is more noticeable is Freecel.  On this computer, when I won and the cards all went to the top it was impossible to follow them because they just suddenly seemed to all pop up at the same time.  Now, I can definitely see that they are quickly going up one at a time.


The only thing that comes to mind is ClearType. I believe the setting is Inetcpl.cpl (Internet Control Panel) -> Advanced -> Multimedia -> Always use ClearType for HTML rendering.

See if you get a repro after disabling that.
