Freaky
Extensions disabled?
What is causing it to turn different colours? (i.e., what are you doing before?)
When did this start?
Is it just on the home page?
Cleared cache/DNS?

What browser themes do you have installed on your computer, please? For all browsers.

It appears as though your browser (IE is it?) is displaying some active toolbar buttons as a tiled background.

some examples of Firefox icons extracted from theme jar files:

a2rvo1.png
2rctqi9.png
2eupysy.png


So one of the backgrounds you showed is obviously:
rc4jkl.png

Which is a tiled version of an active (animated) throbber (loading image), active (mouse hover) back, forward, stop & perhaps home buttons from a browser theme.

The other background image appears to be a tiled version of perhaps the toolbar background (background image that sits behind the navigation buttons/URL bar).



1 Did you try resetting IE back to default settings?
2. Have you installed any extensions or addons for IE?
3. Have you been playing in your registry?
4. Are you using any custom stylesheets for IE?
5. Did you do anything different or install any program/addon just before you noticed this starting to happen?
6. Does it happen on any other websites, or only specific URLs on Torn (ie. homepage & Travelling)?

I have no idea how to even do this without messing with your registry (don't do it unless you know what you are doing).

1. I don't know how, i would appreciate it if you could tell me.
2. No not unless they've installed without me knowing about, which i doubt.
3. Nope.
4. Nope.
5. No, it just started happening, i just thought it would of been you guys doing a update and it's bugged some of the server or something, guess not.
6.No it's only torn, and everything i click (Newspaper and every page in the newspaper, gym, faction, job, ect. just every single one) but everything to do with traveling shows the second 'animation' (ScreenShot2)
And yeah, i guess if it's un-fixable i can live with it, it doesn't create lag or anything so it's not really that much of an issue.

Here is a link on how to restore IE to default settings:

support.microsoft.com/kb/923737

Alternately you can google it.

As I said I don't know of any way this could be done without deliberately modifying the registry to do so. I suggest you should also do a spyware/virus scan of your computer, because if you didn't make this change, *something else* has.

Norton is complete crap.

Get Avast: www.avast.com/en-au/free-antivirus-download or www.avira.com/en/support-download

Either of the free ones are fine, and are far superior to Norton.

This is a problem with the OP's browser settings and/or a virus, and not an issue with Torn.
