Hello The Coffee Lady
, this kind of issue has something do to with an add-on or a setting in Internet Explorer. IE7 is definitively easier to fix, since it can be easily restored to default settings, but you can also fix IE6.
Some people with similar erros state that this procedure can fix their problem. It is worth a try.
Go to Control Panel>Internet Opetions>Advanced Tab. Uncheck "Enable Third party browser Extensions"
However if that does not work for you, you may try one of the other options.IE6:
Go to Start>Control Panel>Internet Options> Programs tab> Manage Add-ons
From the drop down list select Add-ons that have been used by Internet Explorer
Disable all the add-ons and try opening internet explorer. If this works, you can re-enable each one 1 by 1 to find the one that is causing the problem.
You can then choose to delete, disable or update that particular add-on.
Get to the Internet options Window. Click on the advanced tab, and then click on Restore to Defaults.
