Ahhh, do you you require users to create an account before placing an order?   
If so, restoring to factory defaults hints at cached files and or session data 
issues.  My guess would be that you have some sort of autoload routine in 
interchange (or in some page) that is somehow affecting user login status.  
Your problem #3 suggests this.

If fixing the problem can be accomplished by restoring IE then, it seems to me 
that all you are doing is removing any cookie data or cached pages on the 
client.  If that fixes it then the issue has to be related somehow.  There 
could be a plugin issue I suppose, but highly unlikely due to the fact that 
both IE and FF have the same issue.
