I bet it's your flash addon/plugin installation. Check which versions you have installed in your Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs (Programs and Features for Win7). It's possible you may have multiple versions installed, but you can uninstall all of them, then install the latest by going to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

I have the same problem on my workstation at work, the Flash ads constantly f*** all my browsing windows when I get a bad ad on NASIOC.

You can confirm this by pressing "CTRL + ALT + DELETE" and clicking "Task Manager", then under the "Processes" tab, check for processes running with "flash" in their name and see if they're using a lot of memory. (alot meaning, possibly using 100,000+ K)

I am guessing it is IE filling up on memory. Old versions (on Vista) of IE freak out if javascript/web files use a lot of computer memory, and if you are running a lot of other programs at the same time. Between ads, the chat bar and an over use of social plugins, there is 50+ javascript/flash files loaded for each page (horrible for global variables) and they all are sucking memory trying to make their own thing work.

You could try getting rid of the Nasioc chat bar on the bottom, or get the newer versions of Firefox, Chrome or Opera. Those newer versions have better javascript engines. Flash ads will also take up memory and Firefox and Chrome have the wonderful AdBlock to stop those Flash Ad nasties.

I am kind of surprised it only happens on this site though. Does it happen when you have any other programs open?

If you become a nasioc supporter, you don't get those ads.

Just sayin'

It happens on my work machine with IE. Wait for the page to fully load before scrolling.

Some people mentioned to update your video drivers. For that matter, you might want to check if the proper video drivers are even installed.... you may be running generic software rendering drivers. This is common if the computer wasnt' initially setup correctly.

If you're on windows 7:

Click start and in the search box type: "Device Manager"

Look under display adapters and post here what is listed. It should say something like a video card name, or "Intel 3D Graphics Display Driver" or something similar.

If it says something like "Generic PnP Display Adapter" or "Windows Display Adapter" or something like that, it could be your problem. (I'm not sure what the generic adapter is called these days)

Ditch IE. Seriously.

As a developer, you have no idea the headaches this useless piece of garbage causes. It should be banned from the internets.

I had the same problem.

Just close the Chat Bar with the far right button at the bottom of the page and the problem will go away.
Can't believe no one suggested that, oh that's right this is a car furum

edit: looking at your pics you can see its the chatroom bar scattered up and down the screen. far right on the bar there is an arrow to close it. there will still be the chat bubble there that will still lag but it isnt nearly as bad as the entire bar.
Oh, looks like they did. I guess reading previous posts in a thread is just too difficult for people on a car forum.

My first guess would be video drivers (update through windows update or from the manufacturers site)

My next suggestion would be to look at the add-ons in IE and disable all toolbarss.

And as many others have said, use a different browser--chrome or firefox.

when i'm on my macbook pro or using safari: it doesn't happen.

whem i'm suing IE - it happens all the time. even on my macbook pro (windows 7 / boot camp)

my Dell E520 is 8+ years old, running vista, 1GB video card, 4GB of ram. this also happens at work sometimes too.

I would in this order do these things if it were my computer.

uninstall IE.
install chrome (or FF if you so desire)
install adblock
enjoy interwebs

if all that fails to rectify the problem, do a windows clean up and ensure all programs (java/flash/etc) and drivers are up to date.

if everything fails to fix the problem, buy a new computer.

Obviously you need a bigger turbo

This will get rid of some restrictions and give more WHP to your internet browser.





or install linux > ubuntu

I had a similar issue with Chrome... I was able to solve it by doing the following:

open up the extensions tab, go through each extension you have installed one by one and disable them. After disabling one, test Nasioc until you find the extension that is causing the glitch.

I had the same issue only with internet explorer. the newest version of internet explorer really bogged my laptop down. I cleaned out the whole thing then did chrome as my browser and now im back to normal.
