Problems with Sony Camcorder software

I purchased a Sony HDR SR7E camcorder a while back, and for the most part I love it, but there is one thing that is really frustrating me. The software that comes with it to playback videos on your home PC in the native AVCHD format (Motion Picture Browser) has a really unusual problem.



As you can see the top half of the screen is fine, but the bottom half is just a solid green line. The camcorder itself plays back the videos fine, and when you make a DVD or convert the videos to mpeg-2 format, the resultant video is fine, the problem only seems to exist in the Motion Picture Browser software.

I am running Windows Vista, Motion Picture Browser Version on a Dell Latitude D820 with 2GB RAM. I can't seem to find any mention of it on Sony's website, the only other mention of it I have been able to find is here. If anyone else has seen this issue, or if anyone else knows what the solution might be, I'd love to hear about it.
