    Hi Yar - Well, depends on what you mean by "causing problems". They will
    certainly cause problems with respect to the proper functioning of the
    capabilities they were installed to support, but disabling them won't crash
    your system or otherwise impede normal functioning of IE (as long as they
    are properly disabled, of course - use BHOCop, still available free here:
    http://www.pinwire.com/downloads-cat-6.html or BHODemon 2.0, here:
    http://www.definitivesolutions.com/bhodemon.htm. The first will let you
    save and restore different configurations of BHO's [this can be useful when
    trying to determine if BHO's are interfering with each other] while the
    latter can also sit in your tray and monitor for the addition of new
    [possibly malware] BHO's to your system if you wish. Both are Recommend.)
