Hello JuMpMaN6235, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Using Internet Explorer Compatibility View on that website may help it display properly.

Hope this helps,

Brink, Thank you so much. I went into Tools and clicked on something like "use Compatibility View for all websites," and now I have control of my cursor, drop-downs, etc., again. This has been huge problem. Is there some way you could get this solution to other Forums within Sevenforums site? There are a lot of people asking about this problem in other forums here. Some think it is related to Logitech mouse, but I believe it is associated with my "update" to IE8; the timing appears compatible.

Blank Drop Down Menus
I noticed this earlier today: all drop down menus are blank. For example, the run drop down menu throws up a blank white box that I can't scroll through. Nothing is highlighted, and there are no entries at all. The same is true when I press CNTRL+O for all programs. I can browse through...

Drop down menus on newegg.com
Hi all, Don't know what I did. Didn't install any new software or updates or drivers. While surfing the web the drop down menus at Newegg.com fail to work in regular IE8. They work fine in InPrivate browsing using IE8 and while using Firefox they also work. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
