Cannot do File - Save As or Print in Internet Explorer

I'm having problems with Internet Explorer.  I can't select 'File - Save as' or 'Print' operations.  In the case of File - Save As, I just get a dialogue box saying 'Getting File information' which then disappears after a while.  For 'Print', it just doesn't do anything - it's like I never pressed the button.  Web browsing is fine though - it's just those functions that don't work.
I've tried upgrading to IE8, and installed Google Chrome (same problems with Chrome, so it must use some shared components). The only thing that works is Firefox - but that's not really a solution, more of a workaround.
I'm sure it's not a virus - I have pretty comprehensive protection; it just looks more like a bug.
Anyone out there with any inspiration?

Techdivision--Pure guesses.  
1)  Try running IE without Add-ons.  Start|All Programs|Accessories|System Tools|Internet Explorer (no add-ons).
2)  Do you use a Third Party Toolbar (like Google)?  If so, uninstall and see if that helps.
3)  It is probably too late for this, but try a System Restore to a date before the problem started.
