Double scroll bar on Chrome

Notice the double scroll bar to the right. The squishing is hard to make out but it makes highlighting and clicking on hyperlinks extremely difficult since despite everything being skewed to the left, somehow the cursor doesn't register the skew when you highlight... Discombobulated.

For some reason, recently, I have been getting this VERY IRRITATING double-scroll-bar-squished webpages from my Chrome browser for non-Google pages. This makes surfing an extremely painful experience, unfortunately, especially with all the Olympics going on. I didn't want to give up on Chrome yet.

1) So I reinstalled Chrome --> didn't solve the problem.

2) I search deeper and found this:!topic/chrome/Q3bCcMuDGTo

Follow the steps here:
a) Go to "chrome://plugins"
b) Click on "+" sign next to Details at the top right to expand all the information about the plugins.
c) Under "Flash" (which is the first one for me), search for the Location that ends with "...PepperFlash/pepflashplayer.dll" (use the search function, or it's the first one for me too) and DISABLE it.
d) Re-start the browser and the problem should go away!! Hurray!!

I had the exact same issue (during July and August 2012), followed these exact steps and now it works correctly!

Even this website displayed with the double scroll and blurred page lol! But not anymore! Thank you!
