There can be an issue if you have both the Java VM and the Microsoft VM installed. In Internet Explorer go to Tools -> Internet Options and click the Advanced tab. Scroll down about half way and look for the heading "Microsoft VM" and make sure the "JIT compiler for virtual machine enabled" option is checked. You will have to restart your computer for the change to take effect.
To check for the Java VM, go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel. Look for a program called "Java Plug-in 1.x.x". If there, open it up and make sure the "Enable Java Plug-in" is unchecked. You will have to restart your computer for the change to take effect.
