    Holy... O_O That is blurry! Repeating blocky artifacts like that scream "graphics card problem" to me, and the fact that it's occurring only within the IE display area and not the surrounding interface suggests it could be a problem with DirectDraw. Try turning off graphics acceleration (Control Panel > Display > Screen Resolution > Advanced Settings > Troubleshoot tab, and move the acceleration slider to "None"), restart and see if that makes a difference.

    HI

    I know this is a daft question but is there a splitter on the vga cable? If there is check all the leads and screws are tightened up and that the cables are not damaged. Turn the power off to the splitter and power it back on.

    Try it with out the splitter. If that does not work we have had problems with screen resolution being too high for the monitor/ projector try say 800*600 and see if the problem goes.

    Try a different monitor.

    This has worked, but with it being on the network, we can only change it for ALL our computers, unless anyone knows how to change single computer settings?

    Turning it off is just ignoring the root cause of the problem though. If it messes up in Internet Explorer, it could mess up in other software that uses DirectDraw/Direct2D too. I had a similar problem the other day where PowerPoint 2010 was bluescreening every PC in the room when running any graphics-heavy slideshow, because that also uses GPU rendering for smoother animation and effects. The fix in my case was to ditch the OEM graphics driver and use the most up-to-date driver direct from Intel (which I had to force to install through Device Manager, because the setup program just sees an OEM driver already installed and refuses to go any further). I recommend you investigate if there's a more up-to-date graphics driver than the one you have installed, and try a generic driver instead of the OEM one if it's newer. Leaving the underlying problem unfixed is asking for a nasty surprise later.
