    anyone else having funny things happen on the installed TWS 4? When I click or move the mouse over something a small square or rectangle stays there and changes colour. Really distracting! (example: destination menu that pops up leaves a "stain" as the mouse moves over it)Is this just java? have I installed it incorrectly? your input is appreciated.

    Yes, been having this problem for a week. Especially bad today with bids/asks screwed up. I had it changing colors, then the grid showing up, then everything blanking out, and then a reboot. Def would appreciate your passing along these problems to the appropriate individuals.

  3. No problem here.

    no problems whatsoever since the new upgrade. fast executions, BEST ECN works well, no crashes.

    Mr. F./Babak,
    I'm not a technical expert but the problem may be the graphic cards on your computer. On the silicon investor thread relating to IB there is some discussion on the topic.

    If that doesn't help send details of the problem to the help desk with the subject "technical assistance needed".

    thank you everyone for your input/help. I will contact IB and see what they recommend.

    just wanted to close this thread by mentioning that the problem was caused by my video card's (Matrox G450 dual head) driver. *NOT* by the program!
