I've got a bizzare situation here, and I'm not understanding it much at 

I have a course: 201 physics, and I have it set up as a DOCS style course.
There is an html page with a bunchof hardcoded links (to other resources 
and to things like NAVMAPS). I then have a couple of folders with timed 
quizzes and then one with an assignment in it (untimed).

I have a significant number of students (10+? out of 250) who are telling 
me they get to this first page and then can't get to the assignments.

I just spoke to one women who said that when she clicked on links on this 
page, sometimes they just did nothing, and sometimes it would crash IE.

She was using the inline menu. She solved her problem eventually by 
clicking real fast when she logged in to bring up the remote control. When 
she did this, she could navigate just fine.

I had another student who installed netscape fresh, and everything worked.

I'm a bit confused here, and unfortunately am not able to reproduce this 

Any suggestions?
