Start IE in normal mode, click the Tools menu and look for an item with
"Add-on" in the name. I'm running IE8 now, where it's "Manage Add-ons". Might
be worded a little differently in 7. You get an "applet", a small pop-up
screen, with a list of the add-ons. When you click one of the add-ons in the
list, you will get the option, just below the list-box I beleive, to
"disable". After you disable one it will be listed in a separate list-box,
where you will be able to enable it again, if you want. If you don't have any
guesses about which one is the culprit, then disable the first one in the
list, then "ok" your way back to the main screen, then shut IE down. Start it
again, that one add-on will be disabled. Use it for awhile. If it works the
way it should, that's the culprit. If it still acts up, go back to the
add-ons applet, "enable" the one that was disabled, then "disable the next
one. Shut-down IE7 down. Start it again. Repeat until you find the one
special add-on that, when disabled, allows your browser to run the way it
Good luck,Hope it's the first one
