Often BEX errors are caused by Toolbars such as Google, TrendMicro and others. Are you using
any 3rd party toolbars in IE? Cause and fix is same for Vista and Windows 7.

What antivirus/antispyware/security product do you have on machine? Include any you have
EVER had on this machine including those you uninstalled (they leave remnants behind which
causes issues).

Start - All Programs - Accessores - System Tools - IE with no Addons - does this work better?

IE - Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Tab - click Restore Advanced Settings and then click RESET - APPLY / OK

IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security Tab - click Reset all zones - APPLY / OK

Close and restart IE and/or IE with no addons

Start - All Programs - Accessores - System Tools - IE with no Addons - does this work better?

IE - Tools - Manage Addons (for sure disable SSV2 if it is there, this is no longer needed but Java
still installs it and it causes issues - you ever update Java go back in and disable it again.) Look
for other possible problems.

Windows Defender - Tools - Software Explorer - look for issues with programs that do not look
right. Permitted are usually OK and "not permitted" are not always bad. If in doubt about a program
ask about it here.

Could be a BHO - SpyBHOremover - Free - standalone program, needs no install, download, UnZip
and run. Also not all BHO's are bad, some run toolbars and features you have added.

Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever suspect malware UPDATE it and then
run it as a scanner.

Hope this helps.
