    Photos in Win 8 apps (News, Sports,etc) acting squirrely


    Hello,
    I just recently upgraded from Win 8 to 8.1, and most everything seems to be working fine. The only issue I'm finding is that if I'm viewing some of the apps stories (News and Finance to be specific), and if I move my mouse/cursor, the photos in these apps will begin to act funny, like becoming blurry, looking like a negative, and jumping around in their frame. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same problem.

    Attached is a sample of the photo distortion once the cursor is moved.


    I have a Dell XPS 15z laptop with an NVIDIA GEForce GT525m graphics adapter. I've updated to the latest drivers (327.23). I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the apps that are experiencing the problem.

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
