You could try deleting temp files, cookies and history - that usually sorts out blips with IE for me (apologies if you've already done that).

Which version of IE, is it IE7 or IE6?

Hi, If you are using IE7 I would advise you to uninstall IE7 in Control Panel, Add/Remove -
you will then automatically revert to IE6.

IE7 works ok for some people, but many others, myself included, have various problems with it, so I am sticking with IE6.

..or Firefox 2.0...:-)

I have had no problems with IE7, I think most of the problems with it arise from plugins such as Yahoo tool bar. If you have plugins such as that uninstall them and give IE7 a chance.
