Ok thanks...apparently a corrupted database
is not the cause of the problem.
Here's another guess.....maybe you have an
issue with your video driver.
Try reducing your Graphics Hardware Acceleration
as per the instructions in the following article.
(272193) PI: How to Troubleshoot
(scroll down to: Windows Vista)
If reducing your Graphics Hardware Acceleration
cleared up the issue...you need to update your
video driver. Once the driver is updated...return
your acceleration to Full.
Go to the support website of your video
adapter's mfg. and search for Vista
If you don't know the make and model of
your video adapter...check the documentation
that came with the computer.
Also you could try these steps...
Go to...Start / Search...type...
msinfo32 ...press enter.
On the System Information screen...choose...
Components / Display / Adapter Description
You should find the make and model of your
display adapter as well as the driver version.
If the driver on the support website is more
current than the one you are running...
download it and install it. Also you should find
installation instructions at the support site.
