    When I start older visualbasic (I think) applications (solitaire games) and start moving cards around, the screen shows partial cards in places. If I wait two seconds the sceen area of the application flickers twice. If I wait til after this there is no problem, but if I move cards while flickering it takes a 'snapshot' of where the cards are and leaves a trace of them. I'm running windows xp home edition with sp2 and all updates. I have pretty good antivirus and spyware software installed (AVG). Any ideas? Do I need to update Visual basic or will only updating the ATI drivers fix this? TIA paj692
