I just installed Office 2013 Professional Plus yesterday. I have a NVIDIA GTX 690 GPU. Today is the first time I actually used Word 2013. I just noticed that there is flickering whenever I scroll the page up or down. It's not a heavy screen flicker. It's the graphics or text in the document flickering when I scroll, as though it's too slow and can't catch up with the page scroll. I can't believe MS would release something like this.

In any case, I tried Microsoft's recommended fixes, but to no avail. Any ideas? It's killing my eyes.

Which of those fixes did you actually try? I.e. Did you update your video driver? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jan 27 '13 at 15:38
I installed 2670838 and disabled the graphics acceleration. I wasn't going to reinstall the GPU driver. I just did that about 2 weeks ago. It's okay though. I'm back to Office 2010 until MS gets the flickering problems and extreme whiteness of Office 2013 sorted out. – H3br3wHamm3r81 Jan 27 '13 at 19:41
