Troubleshoot:Drop-down menu not working in IE 8

Drop-down menu not working in IE 8


I have been trying to obtain information from the following site:
Unfortunately, on my home PC that has Windows 7 and IE 8 installed, the drop-down menus just do not work (they do on my office PC that has XP Professional and IE 7).
I have tried changing some IE settings under
Internet Options and even resetting the defaults, but it still doesn't work.

Would someone be able to let me know what setting I should change (or check whether on another PC with IE 8 these menus work).

Thank you very much for any guidance or assistance.
