Windows 7: back button stops working...

back button stops working...

It's not a big issue, but after I use the browser for awhile the back button stops working. It's fine if I use the pull down menu and select the page I want to go back to, and it's also fine if I right click and select back, but the actual back button that's part of the browser stops working.

It's not really an issue, but it is quite annoying. I'm wondering if anyone knows why this is? Oh and I only use IE with W7 so idk how firefox and others work.

Clean install. If I exit the browser and re-open it the button will be fine for awhile, but then stop again. It's not that it doesn't work, it's that something is stopping it.

There maybe an addon that got your browser corrupted. Open IE without addons,[ Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)], run it for a while and see how it works. If you prefer, you can reset IE by going to internet options, clicking advanced, then click the reset button to give IE a fresh start. If you don't want to do that, then you can disable one addon at a time. Click Tools, then Manage Addons, then select one addon at a time, and disable it, run IE for a while to see if you have the same issue.

Ok I'm doing it now. I see something strange though, I have some messed up addon, so I'm copying the information. I doubt I have a virus though, or atleast I shouldn't since this computer has only been running 2 week. All I've done was install ESET (uninstalled since it isn't compatible), installed WoW, and then some microsoft stuff, and all from official disks nothing from the internet. Only thing from the internet is kasperky but that was through W7 suggestions...

Then any addons you are not sure about, you can disable it. Go ahead and either reset IE, or just start it without addons and see how it runs for you. Your computer can become infected within minutes of being on the internet, so it being up two weeks is plenty of time to get infected.

well... I'm saying what the heck kinda addon can {1606D6F9-9D3B-4AEA-A025-ED5B2FD488E7} be? I have no clue how it even got there...

besides... I would hope kasperky can keep viruses out...

but yeah, it's working better with addons disabled. I'll wait a day or so though just to be sure.

EDIT: that addon is part of ieSpell, which partially downloaded before I stopped it. The problem that's bugging me now is that I have no ieSpell, yet it's still showing up as an addon. It's not on my computer I know that, is there any way for me to remove that from the addon list?

Yeah, It's working fine now, but does anyone know how to remove an addon from the addon list?

I screwed up since it never made it to add/remove programs since I stopped the download halfway and just removed what was already downloaded, and now IDK how to remove it from the addons list... =(
