Internet explorer behaving funny

  BlessedMan 11:03 13 Jan 2009

I am having problems with IE 7 since I installed windows live programs, I have uninstalled them, restored advanced setting and reset, deleted temporary files and still have not resolved the problem.

The problem occurs on various sites like yahoo classic mail. When I log in it displays funny, the mail/contacts/calender/notepad tabs are no longer tabs but are listed vertically. All the frames look very different.

Other sites like my online bank account will show a header and footer but the login or entry boxes will not be displayed. Some others will not show anything at all.

Thanks for your suggestions

Try a System Restore back to before this started.

And/Or, run click here in case you have malware.

I hope I don't have to do a system restore, I don't think I've got a spyware as I use 2 tools for this and the machine is clear.

Why are you worried about System Restore??

It will lock up my pc for a long time, it could go wrong, and then one would have to rebuild.

Hi Technotiger, I bit the bullet and went for the system restore, now the problem is solved. I once had a terrible experience with the vista system restore which is why I will use system restore as a last result.
The problem I am sure had to do with security settings as I could not run flash, no could I install activex control applications
