    I had a similar problem a few days ago.
    - Try downloading an alternative browser such as firefox or opera ( etc.... If either one of these work, I suggest you just stop using IE as all in all it is a less secure, less user friendly browser.

    If not, have you performed any sort of virus scan/spyware scan/used a tuneup facitily (ie, disabled some startup items etc..)

    If so I suggest that you use system restore (if you can) or some Backup Centre type thing to restore to an earlier date or undo any changes.

    If you have not please visit the Web and Security Thread on the forums and follow the steps on the Locked Posts.

    Please Let us know what works etc!

    Regards, Toddy
