I can confirm this is also a problem on windows NT SP6a with the
latest patched version of IE. On this machine no scrolling is needed
it simply locks up the screen and the BIOS emitts an angry beep,
A hard power cycle is needed to get going again.
Upon restart windows throws me into VGA mode and brings up a dialog
indicating an invalid screen resolution was choosen.

Try scrolling the picture for few seconds...[ don't kill the process] I have tested it on several machines with intel
vga. it reboots Winxp with a fetal error because The driver for the display device got stuck in an infinite loop.
ps: I've tested with firefox and IE browser... The exploit isn't triggered via a opera browser. There have been
reports, Matrox G400 video card, driver (version 22.214.171.124.) on windows 2000 (sp4) also crashes.
The image itself is not big but the html resizing of it is big.
