Submit buttons in IE8

Hello Experts,

Here is a quick one for you, I am running Windows XP and have IE8 on this older laptop and for some reason I must click on a submit button after entering a password or anything, it wont let me click on the button, it just beeps and I have to actually click the button.  I know this seems stupid, but its annoying.  Any ideas?

That's confusing because it sounds you said you can't and you can.  Clarify please.

It could be a javascript based form without an actual 'submit' button.  My Comcast login is like that.  Things like that are done to prevent automated submissions.

That Submit works with by pressing Enter in both IE8 and Firefox on my computer.  Try running IE without addons.  Click on Start -> Run and type "iexplore.exe -extoff" in the box and click on OK.  Then see if Enter will work.

I haven't a clue at this point unless your IE is just corrupted.  Please click on "Request Attention" above to get others to look at this.
