Start IE7 without add-ons from:
Right-click the IE icon on the desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no add-ons)
If the problem goes away, you have an incompatible browser add-on installed.
Go to Start> Control Panel or Start> Settings> Control Panel. Internet
Options> Programs> Manage add-ons. Disable all add-ons then re-enable them
one at a time until the troublesome add-on shows itself. Leave that one
disabled or uninstall it or see if there's an updated version which won't
cause problems with IE7.
