Not sure where exactly to put this and I'm not a developer enough to help in this arena for posting additional information. Basically, after I load up Blender as soon as I begin to move the mouse around, everytime the mouse enters a new view section or toolbar or crosses some UI boundary all other items in the interface begin to slowly creep away and blur slightly, to the point if I do a simple 90 degree rotation of the primative cube I cannot see anything but a giant grey smear where the menus and panels used to be. I download this the same day I sent this message as this was the first install on this system. If more information is necessary, let me know what I can offer to assist.

Uploaded an quick screenshot of the effect I am experiencing, in Windows XP with both EXE and ZIP packages getting the same result:

usual cause is antialiasing, which should be turned off.

Wow, can't believe the kind of effect it was having. I recently reformatted and installed the new nVidia drivers which featured the vista style control panel and I guess it's wizards automatically enabled anti-aliasing (setting was set to override all options to anti-aliasing: 2x now set to none/off). Disabled the new control panel, found the option and disable anti-aliasing and sure enough worked great. Thanks so much for the help ;-)

Yeah, have to agree, except for the fact that it made almost every part of the blender interface unusable after a few actions, in the beginning I almost thought it was an intentional effect.
