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.
