Here's another problem besides the XP taskbar that's been bothering me. I don't think I've ever noticed this problem before in Windows 98, but in both windows 2000 and XP, using IE 5.5/6, whenever I visit websites loaded with gifs the scrolling slows to a crawl. IE does not display the gifs at their proper speeds, and a quick check of cpu usage shows that it goes WAY up when displaying any sort of GIF on page. I have tried other browsers like opera, and it is free of this problem. Again going back to grahpic drivers etc, none seem to be making a difference. Anyone here have any ideas?
