I work for a web software company and in recent months my laptop has begun demonstrating some strange behaviour on certain websites that none of my colleagues are able to replicate. It seemed to come about around about the time I installed a HP printer at home and it installed a 'print from web' utility as part of the install process, which I've since removed. The issues I'm having include:
- Error on page messages (In IE)
- Graphics misaligned in navigation lists (in IE)
- There was also an issue in Chrome to do with a website navigation overspilling the websites width
Again to reinterate, this is not happening for any of my colleagues - and the final issue re Chrome suggests it might be a general laptop problem rather than IE specific.
I've tried the following:
- Running IE in 'safe mode'
- Resetting IE settings
- Rolling back from IE8 to IE7
However, nothing has cured the problems.
It makes my job very difficult as I do quite a lot of web application testing within the software company that I work for - and it seems that I'm regularly reporting 'phantom bugs' that nobody else can replicate!
My question is, what other setings could I play around with to see if I can get to the bottom of this?
