Thank you members for your past help!! I think I must have chosen something wrong and can't find it in what I think are the regular ways: Control Panel> Set Program Access and Computer Defaults> or Control Panel> Internet Options.

It's very difficult because I can't do anything with a webpage trying to open in a [read only] page of Word and, of course, cannot use the site. It's only been happening since last Fall so I keep thinking I must have changed something by mistake. It doesn't happen every single time I'm in a site so some must have a different setting that overrides whats in mine? It was around the time I installed Internet Explorer 9 Beta so I wonder if it happened during that?

Thank you very much for any help you can offer,
Deb :crazy:

Try doing a repair of Internet Explorer via Add/Remove Programs and see if that fixes it.
