Windows 7: Clicking on hyper links does nothing in internet Explorer

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Clicking on hyper links does nothing in internet Explorer


Few of our users who access their CRM site through internet explorer are facing issues. They are using Internet Explorer 10 with all updates applied. When they click a hyperlink browser does nothing. Same is the case with drop down menus clicking on a button that is supposed to show a drop down menu shows nothing.

Maybe attempts to make CRM work for IE11 is breaking things for IE10:

See if Add-ons are causing the issue:

Open Run (Winkey + R)

Type: iexplore.exe –extoff


This will open IE with all the Add-on disabled. Try clicking on a link and see if the problem persists. If the problem doesn't happen, figure out which add-on is the cause (Google toolbar was one I saw frequently).

Internet Explorer - Enable or Disable Toolbars and Extensions Add-ons

Also, if Enhanced Protected Mode is enabled on x64 Windows 7, IE10 will have 64-bit tabs by default for IE10. This may account for this

Internet Explorer 10 - Enable 32-bit or 64-bit IE10 in Windows 7
