Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It could be caused by some add-on.

I would suggest disabling all add-ons (how to do that could be different depending on the IE version) and see if that solves the problem. If it does, then you can start enabling them one a time and see if the problem reappears, so you can identify the problematic add-on and uninstall it.

Also, I would recommend a scan with some anti-spyware program.

    Check toolbars specifically (especially the Yahoo toolbar). I've seen the yahoo toolbar do this countless times! Hope this helps! -Schmidtw
