First thanks for taking the time to read this post. I am having a really hard time clicking in boxes and typing. I have to click on the box, (it shows crosshairs) then right click and hit delete just to be able to type in the "box" it is not on a pic or anything like that. Is it an virus or just something stupid I am missing....Again thanks!NYGIANTS21

If you are using custom cursers and IE7.
Switch to standard windows cursors.

Perhaps just the custom curser needs changed to windows cursers.
IE7 or not. Try Firefox and see if it does the same thing.

Well the thing is that I never changed my cursor. It is still the same until I click on an item to type in it. I click and it shows crosshairs and I am still not able to type.

Thanks

Does this occur only in IE7? If so, try the following:

Click on Tools then Manage Addons (if that still exists in IE7 - I do not have nor do I want IE7 but this worked in IE6).
Disable ALL addons then see if the problem is resolved.
If yes, re-enable them one or two at a time till you find the culprit.

If that doesn't fix it, you can uninstall IE7 from Add or Remove Programs after checking the Show updates box at the top. Scroll down to Windows Internet Explorer 7 and Remove it.

This will give you IE6 back. You can stay with it or reinstall IE7 via Windows Update.
