    Flash banners distorts when scrolled

    Softpages Level 1
      Hi
      I have a web page ive nearly finished.

      http://62.193.199.67/62.193.199.67/apexengineering.co.uk/

      At the moment I am working on a flash banner.
      Temporarily I uploaded one with scrolling text.
      However if you scroll the page up/down using the scrollbars the image is distorted/fragmented.
      If you drag the whole window its fine.
      Why is this

          Carlo,

          That sounds like video driver problems on your computer.
          I don't see the problem here.
          Can you reproduce the effect in other computers?

            Ive managed to suss this :-
            What I noticed was when the page first loaded.. If i put my cursor over the flash banner I got a tooltip up saying "Click to activate this control" Once I clicked it the problem went (until I next reloaded the page).
            lookingt further I then found out this is all as a result of an ie update few months back. So if you got a dotted box coming up around your flash on web sites Then go read this ....

            You will all tell me now this was common knowledge
            By ther way ive updated my site so u cant see the problem on it now
