Distortion in word documents and grey bars across the screen


Has anyone come across this when using Word 2010?

So frustrating, when scrolling through a document it distorts the writing across the page in a line formation and also puts extra grey bars across the screen at random intervals.

I've posted this screen shot to show you.

Any help would be appreciated?

That looks to me like a problem with the display driver.

Try going to File > Options > Advanced, scrolling to the Display section, and checking the box for "Disable hardware graphics acceleration". Also, visit the website of your video card's manufacturer to look for an updated driver.
