Real time stock ticker

What is the best desktop stock ticker that refreshes real-time prices? Or, alternate question: how do I get Google Finance to work so that it stays real-time?

I feel like this should be pretty easy to find, but for whatever reason, everything I've tried has something that bugs me. Google Finance is great in that it is constantly updating prices every second or two. Unfortunately, though, it has a weird tendency to stay real-time for a few seconds, then "snap" back to prices of 10-15 minutes previous. Other websites make you hit "refresh" to update the ticker. So, I'm looking for the perfect desktop ticker (not an app). What would be great is if Google Finance just worked well. Barring that, what would you recommend? Thanks.
