    Have you run a virus/trojan scan lately? I ask because I _think_ I may have picked up a Java-App trojan from another chess site (NOT RHP). Norton A-V cleaned it up for me.

    Also, have you rebooted in between these attempts with the different browsers?

    Do you set your desktop to use 256 colours? If so, increase this and all should be well.

    The E-Bowmann virus is particularly nasty, but it tends to be more drawn towards chess forums than chess boards.
