    Ok. I'm having a nagging problem with one of the users where I work. He seems to have a bit of a talent for finding problems in IE7 and I've searched the Internet for ages trying to solve them but no luck yet.

    To begin with he seems to regularly manage to get the cursor in IE7 to reset to the left not to the right after typing a letter so when he tries to type "bubble" for example, he'll get "elbbub" appear on the screen.
    This is not a Windows OS problem because everything works fine in any other application. The only way we've found to fix this is to reinstall IE7.

    He also manages to loose the ability to higlight using the mouse. If I use "select all" from the edit menu I can highlight the page as a whole but I cant left click to highlight a sen
    tance for example. Again this is only a problem in IE7 and the only fix has been to reinstall it.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    sounds like he has found a keyboard shortcut for input languages in either the hebrew or arabic script

    If that is the case would that not affect every application as well as Internet Explorer?

    Thats what I was thinking to begin with but with this highlighting problem that theory has gone out of the window. I just wanted to check in with some knowledgeable people to check I wasn't missing something obvious.

    Thanks people 8)

    EDIT:
    Suggestion noted. I'll get back to you with the results.

    Rolling up a paper and hitting with it sounds the best result to me!

    what about

    Tools->Internet Properties->Advance Tab->Click Reset

    if that works tell the user that the next time he breaks his own browser, you will deny him the privilage of browsing the web :twisted: then give yourself a kick for allowing a user too much control :p

    A stuck left arrow key will cause the symptoms you describe.

    Just use IE7's handy reset feature.

    Tools, options, advanced, reset.
