Try going to Start, then right click on the IE icon and select "Run as administrator"
Does that enable the button? If so, I'd then go to the Tools menu item, then to Internet Options, then to the Advanced tab - and the click on the Reset button to reset IE to it's default values.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
