Problems because of the new toolbar?

I've installed the beta toolbar on my pc at home and also at work.
Maybe this has nothing to do with that, but I think that since then I have some problems with my internet explorer windows: some of them became blocked while loading. So I have to use the "CTRL" + "alt" + "suppr." buttons to close them which is not good at all.

Has anyone else these kinds of problems or is it just me?
I don't have the same configurations at work and at home.

Not the same problem (and could also be completely unrelated to toolbar), but since I installed the toolbar, I often get runtime errors (and IE asking me if it should start the debug mode). Funnily enough, I have noticed it only on M$ pages (microsoft.com, hotmail.com and msn.com).

This is interesting...I've experienced some "issues" since installing my beta toolbar. It seems when I click on hyperlinks in my email it ALWAYS opens a new browser rather than opening the page in an existing browser. Before I know it, I've got 10 IEs running.

The runtime errors you are getting (theory, not proven), I'm guessing, are because the code in the page refers to the popup(s) it launched...but since the popup isn't there...it errors out. Just a guess.

Since I've installed the updated toolbar I occasionally loose the scrolling capabillity. It seems quite random and usually happens after I have been online for several hours.

Closing the toolbar and IE sometimes fixes it. But usually it requires a reboot.

I think I found the solution, just go to options in google tool bar icon, uncheck popup and then click ok. Close browser, reopen, and then go back to options, recheck popup and you may get some message to accept changes, yadayada...it should work again. I tested this by going to netscape.com which gave me those errors with it off and fine, then did above, and works like a charm, btw I have elnk popup block but did not like logging into it all the time, googles toolbar allowed me to not login...great stuff.
