Which IE version?
Try removing the update and see if it solves the issue.
I have been experiancing issues with IE snse a recent up date.
I cannot left clcik on any thing, most pop ups are blocked. I am not able to down load anything that requires a pop up. I cannot access anything that requires a pop up log in. I do not have the normal opts at the top of IE such as File, tools and so on.
I use XP and my computer is a Dell Dimension 2350
