Windows 7: Drop down menu

Drop down menu

Hmm, when I click anything here in the forum with a drop down menu, the menu disappears before I can click it. In posts, and messages I can't use the smileys or paper clip. Frustrating. Did I break the forum?

Any ideas what is wrong?

Hello Gary,

What skin are you using at the site, and what browser are you using?

Does it do this when you run the IE9 (No-Add-Ons) shortcut in the Start Menu - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools?

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

At the moment it is Seven Blue CDN, and I'm using IE8 yet.
EDIT: tried no addons with IE8 and the issues is not there. So some add-on is being plucky?

Sounds like it. Time to disable all add-ons, and enable one by one and test until you find the culprit.

Ok. Please let us know what you find so that we may be able to do some testing with it as well.

That's as bare as you can make it?

Might try clearing out your IE cookies/cache, and restarting the browser as a quick test before test disabling add-ons. If it was me, I'd start with the Norton add-ons.

Some of your add-ons are out of date as well (Adobe Flash, Java, etc.)

I think I need the Norton add on. It has blocked some malicious websites.
Today when I started IE, everything is working again, no changes or restarts. I use CCleaner to clean cookies and temps 3-4 times per day.
