My IE8 32 bit in Windows 7 (64 bit) fails to execute hyperlinks sometimes
Sometimes clicking on hypertext links in the subject environment (windows7
64 bit, ie8*32 appears to do nothing, although each click adds an
additional iexplore*32 process to the task manager.

These processes persist until terminated in task manager.

Any clue as to how to troubleshoot/repair?

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)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?

You might try...

Download/run the appropriate, newly-updated script(s) by IE MVP Kai

Tip: The file named ie8-rereg.all.zip contains all three (3) scripts below.

If you have a Win7 32-bit computer:

. Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.cmd & reboot.

If you have a Win7 64-bit computer:

. Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.32on64.cmd to correct the
problem in IE8 32-bit & reboot.

. Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.64on64.cmd to correct the
problem in IE8 64-bit & reboot.

avg antivirus -- current
ad aware -- current
malwarebytes antimalware -- current
no third party firewall

no mcafee ever. don't recall whether norton was on -- that is possible, but
is on no longer.

I'll try your suggestion as to scripts.
