Try to load ie with no add ons and see if there is change

Start >All Programs >Accessories >System Tools >then click on Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

What antivirus program you using?

Possible that it is blocking this.

jskfan--Is this something new?  Try a System Restore to a date before the problem started.

A workaround might be to right click a blank spot on the webpage and click "Add to Favorites...".  
Another way to access is to click Control+D.
Try these so we know the extent of the problem.

And a fix might be

Be aware of the effects of a Reset

You have not told us what version of IE you are using.
