Hi,
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. Aspire, Intel i5-2430M 2.4 GHZ, 64 bit Operating System. We only bought this at the end of December, 2011! When I am on Blogger, I haven't noticed it otherwise, when I move my mouse, sometimes the whole screen goes patchwork. There are squares of yellow, green and orange covering the screen, except for the address bar. (I attached a picture) I can navigate to a new address and it goes away. I am just a bit concerned there is a virus. I have run a full scan with Super Anti Spyware and I quite regularly use Crap Cleaner. Any ideas?

Oh dear,
I did this, restarted my computer, and was surfing for awhile, before it happened again. Should I quit using google chrome?

No, I will, so do I need to do the above again after reinstalling?

Not necessary if reinstalling chrome works

Do you have IE 9?
