ie7 problems in xp

  David7 22:41 17 Jul 2010

Have ie7 with xp sp3. Recently, certain webpages -like the new BBC news website - have links to other pages superimposed on top of normal text. Have updated Java and reinstalled Adoble Flash Player but to no avail. Anyone come across this or know the reason/solution?
Many thanks,

Haven't noticed it on BBC News site but,
Try adjusting the page zoom control.
Hold down Ctrl on keyboard, and press the + or -
or scroll the mouse wheel

Try updating to IE8.

I would also advise you to update to I.E.8

Thanks for repsonses but zooming didn't touch the problem and don't really want to update to IE8.

Presumably you mean like this?

I am a bit new to forums but I clicked on your 'click here' link, and the only thread that brought up the problem was the 'click here' posted by Graham. Your one for the BBC came up all right! But still not on my computer.

Yes, it was Graham who had the problem - I was just wondering if that overprinting was the same as you are getting?

Yes, the problem was the same as Graham's but have updated the graphics software and this has solved the problem on the BBC news website but not on my banking website which has also recently been 'improved' by them. This problem doesn't occur on my laptop with xp and ie7 so must be specific to my desktop computer. Maybe I do need to upgrade to ie8 but thought it had issues of slowness and freezing - or have these now been resolved by microsoft? Many thanks!
