Hi, I've just installed SP3 on my XP computer, but i'm still running IE6. Earlier today, another forum member suggested IE7 instead of IE8 which is fine but having just gone back onto MS update site again it now shows a further 34 updates!! including IE8!!. How do you de-select any of these updates? Thanks, Tony
On the MS update site you can select the Custom option and only download the updates you want. However in theory it should only offer you what it thinks you need! Maybe use the custom option and do a few at a time.
Forum member 'Clapton is God' previously suggested that a high percentage of forum members currently dislike IE8 due to it not being fully 'sorted', preferring IE7 instead. Thats why i wanted to de-select it from the list, installing IE7 now, and IE8 when any bugs have been ironed out. I just can't believe that after installing SP3 there are still so many updates! - Tony
Hi, i've come across an annoyance after my SP3 installation. The scroll wheel on my mouse, which used to 'click' up or down my preset number of lines, now does it as a 'page-refresh' type of effect. Its an odd visual thing and we don't like it - preferring the old jerky system of scroll. Any ideas how to get back to its old ways? Unless i've missed something, the Mouse in control panel doesn't offer any help. Thanks - Tony
Hi DieSse, after installing SP3 yesterday, i did get an error box come up regarding my ATI graphics card although i don't remember what it said. However, the screen defaulted to its lowest quality resolution (huge text and icons etc) and error message as i recall, was related to that. After fixing that, the screen quality is perfect - just as before. So far i've only noticed the mouse scroll problem. Is there a fix do you know? Thanks again - Tony
"After fixing that, the screen quality is perfect"
How did you fix it?
Now, I'm even more convinced you've got a driver issue. The quality of a picture is not the issue - it's the speed at which the picture redraws after it's shifted upwards a line or two (that's what scrolling forces it to do).
Bad, or wrong, or missing drivers make the redraws very slow, giving the effect you describe.
Look for the latest drivers for your card on the ATI site, uninstall any drivers already there, and install the latest ones.
