Strange display issues in Trados 2007

I have recently installed SDL Trados FL 2007 on a laptop running Windows 7 Home 64-bit.
I used the workaround described in this forum to installe Multiterm and everything seems to be working just fine.
However, I am having some weird display issues, specifically with tooltips.
Whenever I hover over some format-painted text, the tooltip appears and then disappears, i.e. flashes on and off. The same happens when placing the cursor over a segment in the concordance search to check the properties.
Also, it seems the cursor is "refreshing" itself all the time (the load symbol appears for a split second time and again).
I guess the latter problem could be a mouse driver thing, but the tooltip issue only happens in SDLX/Trados
Does anybody know what might be causing this?

Many thanks!

Seem to have fixed it.
I was using the Windows Basic display theme, cause I don't like all the glassy animated nonsense of Aero. However the problem doesn't happen with Aero.
Very odd.
Would be interested to know if anybody else is having similar issues...
