    1) & 2) Yes, I have experienced these problems, and they are also reported in the newsgroups. MVP Allen Browne suggests that it has to do with using a Windows XP theme, and that the problems go away if you select Windows Classic as theme in the Themes tab of the Display Properties control panel.

    3) & 4) No idea, sorry.

    1 & 2: I can attest to the "solution" for the database window scrolling. On my personal machine, I use the Windows Classic appearance and don't encounter this problem. On my work machine where I am forced to use an XP theme (because that's probably what clients will use), I see this regularly. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    3: I've never seen that in Access so I can't suggest anything. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>

    4: I suspect that is more a hardware issue than Access. Is Access the only application where you see that behavior?

    Thanks to you and Hans.
    Yes Access is the only app where I see that behaviour, and only since using the new monitor. My guess also was that it was hardware, but I was hoping for an easier solution.
    I have resorted to WIndows Classic, so I will find out if that solves problems 1 & 2.
    Interesting that WinXP has been out for such a long time, yet MS and their trustworthy computing have done nothing about it.
    Thanks to you both again.
    Regards,
    Peter
