IE Browser

Please see attached.

Note the crazy stuff on the far left (says Related Searches at the top), the lower right (searches related to) & then Mozilla Firefox flat on top of my menu bar; that one not only screws up the appearance, it takes away MOST of my navigation.

This DOES NOT happen when the page first opens; it occurs when I move the mouse to lower parts of the page.

How can I get rid of this nonsense?

Rkorts, is this a website you are designing or is it just a website you are visiting?   If you are designing,  I can't help.  If you are visiting,  you can try running Firefox in its safe mode,  as it looks to me like you may have an add on that may be interfering,  and if that doesn't help,  it may be a design issue the website owner needs to be made aware of.   You can't fix someone else's bad work.

I am building the website.

Note that I do all my initial testing in FireFox; it works fine in Firefox. The same issue occurs on all pages in IE.

Note that I said that this garbage does NOT initially occur when the page loads; it's when I move the mouse over the lower part of the page.

I am sure there is either a virus that effects only IE or an Add on in IE that I DO NOT want.

Well the image certainly shows the mess, but it does not give us any information that might help solve it.  We need a link.

It must be my computer. I tried it on another computer in IE, worked fine.

Attached is the top part of the way IE looks on my machine. I don;t know how those odd toolbars got there, maybe one of them is responsible?

Or should I just go get the latest IE & install it?

oh, yeah. you've definitely got some crapware/malware/ definitely Potentially Unwanted Programs installed on that machine.

You should start with your Add remove Programs and remove anything that mentions a Toolbar and anything that mentions Conduit, and then you should install malwarebytes, but get it from http://www.malwarebytes.org/ 
install it, update it, run it and let it remove anything it finds.

See how your website works after that, although you MAY need to reset it's defaults as Conduit may have some remnants in IE, like modifying your search or home page.

DO NOT Click on that Clean Your System on your toolbar, OR on that webpage.  Chances are very high you will simply install MORE Crapware by selecting either of those.

To all,

It turns out that the culprit is something called Yontoo. It had infected my wife's computer in Firefox & mine in IE. Seems odd that it would function like that.

It was installed like a regular program in Windows; just removed it. It resisted & warned that "all these" capabilities would become inoperable.

Amazing how these scams get into your computer. And of course they pretend it's a GOOD thing.
