Do you run NVIDIA graphics drivers and have a problem CTRL selecting multiple items in scripted web applications?
This is used for multiple categories in the TypePad Compose Category pop-up and had me stumped. I couldn’t select them and trying just triggered a new browser window. Single click selection or SHIFT+Selection of a range worked as expected.
I mucked around for ages with scripting settings in the Browser & ZoneAlarm with no joy. Then I found this suggestion from Dan on the IE Discussion Group and it worked. I’ve made a graphic version for those not familiar with msconfig. Thanks Dan!

Oh, I did find one reference to this occurring even with all add-ons disabled in respect of using multiple monitors with an nVidia graphics card, it seems that the nVidia drivers hook the Ctrl+left click handling to deal with allowing windows to be opened on a different monitor than the one IE is on. You can disable this by removing the following line in the system startup using msconfig.exe
However, this will disable all nVidia key shortcuts.
