Re: Why do I have to double click in the address bar?
[I've read all replies to this thread as of 4:15 PM EDT]
Is this sudden, new behavior or an ongoing issue?
Did you just install IE7? Which was installed first, IE7 or SP3?
What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
in the background when you installed IE7 and/or SP3?
Has a Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine
(e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)?
