Disclosure: I'm not an expert, just another perplexed user.
My situation is similar, if not identical, to yours. I got as
far as the yellow bar, "This website wants to install ...",
on which I was invited to click. Over several trials, clicking
resulted only in an hourglass that wouldn't go away, and
in IE becoming non-responding. The problem gradually
got worse, until I couldn't even enter a search term on the
Google toolbar or navigate to a news item in Yahoo without
I got out of the mess by resetting IE (note: this comes with
a warning that it should be done only if the browser can
no longer be used -- note carefully what the process tells
you will be lost in the reset process). In Control Panel,
I went to Internet Options, then to the Advanced tab, where
reset is offered as one option to click on. In the state I was
in, I doubt I could any longer have gotten into Internet
Options through IE.
