Just installed Boot Camp 1.1 (first time Boot Camp user) and everything works fine but Windows Explorer doesn't display web pages, I get lots of blank white space where there should be graphics.

I installed Firefox and it did much better but the fonts are a bit jagged looking, not smooth as I'd expect. I played with the font settings but saw no change.

Seems I've get a graphics driver issue on my MacBook, any help is appreciated.

Stuff does look jagged under Windows compared to OS X.

That's because OS X anti aliases everything, it's an optional settings under Windows XP and doesn't work as well IMO.

Okay I'll look for the font setting in the control panel, still doesn't explain why Explorer won't load a page correctly. Seems like I can't be the only one seeing this problem under Windows.
