Trouble with IE7 and Flyout menus - Possible conflict with flash or javascript

This is very strange.  When I load the example page in IE7 with Vista, the menu system hangs and runs very slow.  It seems that while the menu code is being processed it is conflicting with other events going on (i.e. flash).  This only seems to happen with IE7 and vista.  I have two other machines and the page runs fine in IE7 running on XP and Firefox on both.  

I'm thinking the problem may be specific to my system but I'm not sure and I need IE7 to display properly or testing the site is useless.

Hope someone can help... Thanks,

Also... The screen locks up when clicking on the fullscreen button on the bottom of the virtual tour... Only in IE7.

Ok... I have been working on this off and on since yesterday and I just resolved the issue with the flyout menus, but the flash virtual tour hangs (freezes) after I hit the fullscreen button at the bottom of the tour.

This does not happen in IE7 on my xp machine.  Only seems to happen on Vista.

Steve---You could uninstall Flash and then reinstall.  Note there is a special program to uninstall Flash

If that does not help, perhaps an IE7 add-on is causing the problem.
IE Tools|Internet Options|Advanced tab|Reset.

Hi jcimarron,

Ok, here's the deal... I solved the flyout issue by disabling norton identity safe.  I narrowed it down by hitting the reset in IE7 > tools > Internet Options > Advanced.

I just figured out what was causing flash to freeze on fullscreen and it is an aparent paradox.  I will post this one on a new question, but here is the issue... To have the flyout menu work (come out on top) in FireFox.. I have to add a wmode, transparent command to the flash params in the virtual tour, then the menus work and stay on top in Firefox, but with in IE7 the screen locks.  I need to figure out how to get this to work in both with out having to revamp my whole menu system because that would probably be way more work.
