    Try disabling all IE add-ons.
    Select tools=>manage Add-ons, and disable all add-ons and try again.
    You might need to restart.

    Hope it helps

    Greetings johnjholland1974 !

    1. Uninstall IE7.  Uninstalling IE7 should revert you back to IE6. Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall Microsoft Internet Explorer.  If you cannot find Internet Explorer 7 in Add or Remove Programs, click Start, click Run, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then press ENTER.

    Note: %windir% is the location of your Windows directory, which can usually be found at C:\Windows. To do this, you need to have "view hidden folders" enabled.

    2. If no joy, In some cases, you may get an error message when you try to uninstall IE7 that says you cannot uninstall from a specified user account. To get around this check you will have to edit the Windows Registry.

    Warning: Editing the Windows Registry incorrectly can cause the Windows operating system to stop functioning completely. This is a advanced operation and you are encouraged to back up the Windows Registry before you attempt any editing of the file. You have been warned.

    Bypass the user account check with this Windows Registry edit:

    Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
    Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer.
    Right-click the Internet Explorer key, click New, and then click DWORD value.
    Type InstalledByUser as the name, and then press ENTER to finish creating the new registry value.
    Try to uninstall Internet Explorer 7 again.

    3. Then prevent IE7 from automatically downloading. You can still manually download IE7 in the future.

    Hope this helps, war1
