Why does my friend’s web browser sometimes display corrupted graphics on a specific website?

On a friend’s PC, one of the websites that she visits (msn.foxsports.com) shows the graphics all jumbled. All other websites that she visits display normally. She said it didn’t used to be that way, although I don’t know how long it has been like that as far as doing a system restore point.

I updated the graphics card drivers but that didn’t make any difference. What can I try updating or changing to correct the problem? She is running Windows XP and IE8. I am also running Windows XP and when I access that website with IE8 it looks OK on my PC, so it doesn’t have anything to do with the web browser or version of Windows that she’s using. Thanks in advance.

    Two thoughts -
    1. Empty the cache
    2. IE8 is quite old and the web site may have been updated. Try another browser such as Firefox or Chrome.
