I'm running Windows Vista on my PC and Office 2007. For some strange reason, suddenly, when I click on any desktop folder my IE opens up and says
"Navigation Canceled" it is also showing http:/// in the address bar.
I can't even close the IE at that point, it just sits there clicking like it's trying to open. The only way I can stop it is to log off and back on.
It's the darndest thing I've ever seen. I ran a full anti-virus scan with Norton and NO Viruses!
Any Ideas?

I've seen a lot of viruses recently that can corrupt your Norton and have it present false results. Try one of these free, online scans to ensure that this hasn't happened to you:


Once you're sure that you're clean we can suggest some other things to try.
