Run Internet Explorer in "No Add-ons" mode

by Jacky Howe In reply to INTERNET EXPLORER 7 KEEPS ...

Use the Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) mode
To do this, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

If this resolves the issue, follow these steps to isolate the browser add-on that is causing the issue:
1. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
2. Click the Programs tab, and then click Manage add-ons.
3. Click an add-on in the Name list, and then click Disable.
4. Repeat step 3 until you identify the add-on that is causing the issue.

Did you check for viruses or Rootkits?
Maybe you have the Antivir 2009 or something like this.

By the way, you should use Firefox or something that's not Microsoft.

This is why you should always have at least two browsers

by Slayer_ In reply to INTERNET EXPLORER 7 KEEPS ...

Installed and updated on your system at all times. Because the internet is both the source of all problem, and the source of all solutions. If your primary browser goes down, then you need your secondary browser to solve the problem.

The solutions other people should work just fine. I just want to help you in future problems.

And to the bigot that said don't install MS programs... Go away.

Whats so wrong with IE? It displays more webpages correctly then any other browser. Why shouldn't he keep using it?

I don't see "IE" mentioned in this quote...
