A few days ago I noticed something strange with my laptop and do not know how to remedy it. It seems the problem is isolated to IE8. While browsing online and going to message boards I frequent, I noticed the smilies were out of focus with added pixels or missing pixels. Also, some text on website buttons appear blury as well as some google ads just aren't clear as they were. (this text I'm typing does appear fine). As an example, this smilie: has an extra black pixel appearing under his right eye (the bigger eye). When he blinks the extra black spot appears and then disappears, and then reappears. This didn't happen before.
I tried adjusting the resolution on my laptop, but nothing happened. anybody else encounter something like this? I'm baffled.
Would uninstalling and reinstalling IE8 solve this?
