Screen Flicker With Access 2003 Under Vista

I've noticed some screen flicker when using Access 2003 under Vista
and I'm curious as to whether this is a bug or peculiar to my machine.

In design view, if I make changes to a form and then close the form, a
couple of seconds after I have OKed the save prompt the Database
Window that shows all my objects gives one flicker.

Once again, in design view if I change a property for a control in the
Properties box and then move the mouse cursor back to a control on the
form, mostly, but not always, the "Toolbox" toolbar will flicker a
couple of seconds after I move mouse focus back to the form.

I have my machine in a dual boot XP/Vista configuration and none of
the above problems manifest under XP.

Any comments or help is appreciated.

More info on this issue. The screen flicker problem is really obvious
in the "Relationsh ips" window. When the window is opened, 9 out of 10
times the tables will flicker once. Whenever a relationship is
changed the same flicker will occur.

This flicker issue only manifests when the "Windows Vista Basic" and
"Windows Standard" schemes are being used. When Aero is being used
the problem is not seen. I have found the cause to be the
Intellipoint 6 mouse software. I disabled it in Task Manager and the
problem stopped, then enabled it again and the problem reappeared.
I've now uninstalled it altogether.

Every new release of Intellipoint seems to have issues and this one is
no exception. Maybe one day they'll get it right. If anyone else is
having issues with Intellipoint 6 please post about it.

Hello, I've built a data entry form for a survey database that appears to make the entire form flicker when I mouse over anyn of the label controls. I suspect that it has to do with the standard hyperlink function embedded all label control, even though I am not using it. The refresh/redraw flicker is quite annoying and distracting, making data entry on a tablet difficult for the user.

If you develop for others, you probably have multiple versions of Access installed so you can edit and create MDEs for clients in different versions. This works fine under Windows XP, even with Access 2007 installed. It does *not* work under Windows Vista Ultimate. After running Access 2007, when you open an earlier version of Access, no code works, because the references are fouled up. And Access 97 does not work at all. Access should...

I am looking for assistance with an issue I am gettting with an Access2k application. When I have xp style switched on, switching from screen to screen causes the first screen to resize to it's 'restore' size before the second screen appears.

Hello Everyone, I'm having some very weird behavior on a couple of Access forms. (Not all forms, just some of them). The forms have been working for years, under Access XP/2003 etc, and last week upgraded from Windows XP/Office 2003 to Vista x64/Office 2007. Under Access 2007, a couple of forms are now taking 60 seconds to

Hi all, So I bought a new laptop 10 days ago to test my apps with Vista. (home premium) Apparently Office 2007 is pre-installed.

First thing that troubles me of course is 'the ribbon', but my question now is about speed. I opened one of my Access 2000-apps in Access 2007. Speed and...
