I have recently had problems with a chat box on a favorite site. When anyone enables the chat box, the box refreshes about every 20 to 30 seconds at first, but after a few minutes the refreshing becomes extremely annoying, refreshing every half second to two seconds. I have also noticed that while refreshing, if I scroll I get "trails" from top to bottom of my screen. The trails go away in seconds, but while this happens my screen gets stuck for about a second or two, then returns to normal. When the chat box is not active, I don't have these problems. No one else on the site has this problem. Also, this only happens when I'm on Internet Explorer 7. When I use Google Chrome I don't have this problem.
I have recently had help here at BC.com with some IE7 problems I was having, and these problems have all been fixed (the problem was related to IE7 and conrol panel, including internet options). I ran Hijackthis and other programs to find and correct the problem.
