To rectify this I have done following:

I had to reinstall IE altogether
Ah ok. Usually people give a B if the comment lead them directly in the direction that finally fixed the problem. Like in this case although the repair didn't do the trick it got you to thinking about IE as the possible cause. :)
Oh and thanks for returning to give your views on the grade. I appreciate you doing that. A lot questioners don't so it is a pleasure when one does.
