Extremist that I am, I reformatted, installed the OS a second time, but no updates, and immediately opened IE and had the same slow scrolling behavior when at a web page. When I go to Win Explorer and scroll through a large folder, the behavior is the same, scrolling in waves. But -- when using tabbed browsing in IE, when I tab to a page, the screen refresh is apparently normal speed, always, at the tab click.
Now to make this even more complicated, every so often I'll be at a web page and it scrolls normally. When I immediatley go to view a large folder in Win Explorer, scrolling is very slow, but going back to the aformentioned page in IE I still get normal scrolling, UNTIL I go to a different page, then I'm back to subnormal again.
I did find a post with similar problem and resolution by someone on experts-exchange.com, but I'm not going to pay the membership if someone here has any ideas. Thanks in advance, and I can supply link to the ex-ex.com post.
BTW I did go to display properties and turned off all of the effects..
