When typing, letters skip only on-line

Wanted to find out if others have run into this problem. I have a lap top with Vista running. It's been about a year since I purchased a new Dell and when I type, randomly, letters are skipped while on-line. I use IE to browse. This problem doesn't exist in Word or Excel applications.

Next time that it happens press the insert key, once. It is located to the right of backspace.

If that does not work try the next suggestiion

Assuming that you like IE, why not just experiment with FF or Chrome. You do not have to keep them. Just to find out where the problem really is located?
