Yes, I checked the thread before adding my bit. Neither of the "solutions" made any difference. I changed the resolution, and I tried different compatibility settings.
I didn't respond before now because I honestly believed that I won't get any help anyway, so I didn't look.
Since I seem to have your attention now, you might want to know that in the past day or two my browsing was interrupted by Hughesnet wanting me to complete a survey of your service. Is it wise to annoy someone through an interruption to ask what he thinks of you?
