two quick things to check..
make that sure that this is checked
tools->internet options->advanced tab->Disable Script Debugging
tools->internet options->advanced tab->Display a notification about every script error
if not you might have some corrupt dll's.
check your network settings for the connection issue. Did it work before and all of a sudden stop working or did you change something?
