Cannot see graphics on webpages and excel..

by SwissFrite / October 15, 2007 5:11 PM PDT

I have windows xp, updated with SP1 & 2. I have Microsoft Office, Norton Antivirus, anti spamware etc. When I am on a webpage I cannot see all the graphics (e.g. boxes to click on) and other information. Parts of the page are completely white where the boxes actually are. I find it by moving my cursor around the page until it changes to the fist. Sometimes when I do that it will show what is in the box but not always so I cannot tell what is there. In excel, if I shade a line or box with color it doesn't show on my screen but if I go to print preview I can see that it is there. How can I fix this?
