Yes I had tried compatibility mode with the various sites I had trouble with. It would sometimes help certain things and not others. Other times it seemed to not make a diference.
I logged bank in through Internet Explorer a while ago and the expanded white area of the screen was gone. I am running the current I.E 10 version too. On one computer with Vista and another with & home premium.
At times, I've wondered if it might be due to our old router, but I don't have enought wireless knowledge to know if it could affect it. Could the poor speed of a router's transmisisons if overloaded corrupt updates now and then to cause issues with operating systems, until it might get sorted out during the next update? Does that make sense?
