I have a computer that will not display the contents of drop down menus on any websites. Internet Explorer 7 is the only program the issue occurs under, it works perfectly with IE6 and Firefox, but the customer wants to use IE7. The system is a Dell Dimension 4700C running Windows XP Home SP3. Does anyone have any ideas on what could possibly fix it?

Not sure if you checked this, but it could be a java / flash issue, depending on what kind of websites you visited?
No harm in trying to re-install those I guess...

Also just as an FYI, the menus do drop down properly and navigate properly. The text from the menus just does not appear, just empty white spaces.

well I can't say I ever saw that before. I'll see if I can find something later this evening and post it here anyway.

Okay, I found out what the issue is. Apparently there was an issue with USP10.dll, as soon as I manually extracted it from the install disk everything started working. Even though sfc has been run at least twice it did not pick that up, but all is working now. Thanks!
