System: Dell Dimension 8300 desktop with 512kb RAM
Windows XP Pro SP2 with IE7 (7.0.5730.11)
I have this annoying problem, after having just recovered from a bout with some BHO glitches.
Everything is working fine, except that pulldown boxes on web pages come up blank. For example, the "search in" pulldown box on daniweb. When I click such a box, it shows blank white space with enough real estate to display the items, but there is no text visible. Also, certain other functions on webpages are not available, for example the ability to Browse for and Attach files in Yahoo Maill (the buttons won't load onto the web page). Everything else seems fine.
In the process of recovering from my original problems, I DID reinstall a whole bunch of stuff, including a "repair" installation from the original Windows XP disks, as well as many Windows and browser helper packages, add-ons, patches from Windows Update, etc.
Is is possible that I have not reinstalled something that is vital to the operation of the pulldown boxes?
