Screen Flicker in Internet Explorer within XenDesktop Sessions



When scrolling and doing mouse-overs in Internet Explorer (IE) frames or pages, within a Windows XP XenDesktop session, screen flicker is seen.



You need to enable the following key in the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

Value Name: "Force Offscreen Composition"

Data Type: DWORD

Value: 1

The following registry tweak forces off screen composition within Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and above. This tweak will prevent against screen flicker when you view a web page that contains animated content.
