Try to reset IE7 settings via tools - internet options - advanced tab. You will need to re-enable add-ons. Re-install iespell if you use it.

Then update to IE 8 is a good option in my opinion.

what do you have your security set to in tools-internet options-security?

Are you by any chance getting the ribbon prompt across the top of your IE7 window?

Now that's unusual. Since using Windows' own firewall on all the latest OSs I've had no problems.
