I have had this happen a few times on some customer machine.  You should try a reset on Internet explorer.  One of your Addons has most likely caused this.

Follow the steps on this page to reset Internet Explorer.

To check if it is Addon which makes this trouble, go to Tools>Manage add-ons and disable all of them. If reported behavior disappear (after IE restart) then you know it was an addon. Then you can enable addons one by one (I recommend restart IE after each is enabled) and find the problematic one
