    1. Try running IE with no add-ons. Perhaps one of the add-ons you're using
    is incompatible with an update.

    Run IE7 without add-ons - Start > Run>iexplore.exe -extoff [enter] OR
    Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)
    MS webpage explaining add-ons:

    2. If that doesn't work (or you have no add-ons) uninstall the three updates
    and see if the problem is now solved. If it is, then you know one of those
    updates causes a problem on your system. You might want to check in the
    Windows Update newsgroup with a crosspost to the IE newsgroup to see if
    anyone else is having that issue.

    You are most welcome. My experience with both XP and Vista is to stay away
    from all third-party toolbars. I'm glad the issue was resolved for you and
    thank you for taking the time to let me know.
