What causes all windows & popups to shake and quiver and shiver ?

Every once in a while (especially when I visit suspect web sites :),
every single window on my Microsoft Windows XP & Microsoft Windows 2000
operating systems goes haywire.

All the windows (every single one) shake, quiver, & shiver about.

For example, if I use Netscape to pull down a menu item, that pull-down
menu quivers and shakes and shivers. If I use Eudora to read email, not
only does the main Eudora window shake, shiver, and quiver, but, all the
subsequent pull-down and right-click windows also shake, quiver, & shiver.

It extends to the operating system, e.g., if I use the Start Menu, it too
quivers and shakes and shivers. Likewise for any right-mouse-button popups,
like "File->Send To".

Now, I _know_ there exists javascripting to make a BROWSER shake and quiver
and shiver ... but this is EVERY SINGLE WINDOW on the system!

Do you have any idea why this is happening?

Luckily, a simple cold reboot seems to solve the problem.
All patches are up-to-date from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 7.0.0 is up to date on DAT files (4290 28Aug03)
so I do not think there is a virus.

It's something that happens from the web pages that moves on (somehow) to
all the applications and even the operating system.

What is it that makes Microsoft shake, quiver, and shiver?

I would check out the monitor to see if it's a hardware problem.

1) Try updating video drivers from your video card manufacturers web
site, for your platform. Also see if that web site has a knowledge
base which covers your problem. There are several news groups for
microsoft and video which might be of greater assistance as well.

2) Ditch IE and get Opera at http://www.opera.com. See if this works
better. For me, it fixed a whole bunch of problems. Microsoft products
are really not very good.

Yes, what else are you turning on when the shaking starts? We have 2
monitors on the same table, same electrical line, and when one is
turned on the other will shake. Although you might want to rethink
going to "suspect sites" anyway ;-) !

Sorry. Got to have a little fun.

Eunice, it's not a good idea to threaten your computer with violence.
The poor thing must be scared right down to it's PCB. [=:

I have no idea what you mean by "shake and quiver" but I have seen something
similar after loading certain Java applets using Sun's JRE Plug-in. Certain OS
UI elements tend to "flicker" after loading certain Java applets. After
visiting these suspect web sites check your tray (the indented area by the
clock in the lower right corner) for a Sun Java icon. Right-click it (and wait,
it can take a while for the menu to appear), then choose Exit, does the problem
go away?
