1. Does the problem persist if you Reset IE7 Settings (RIES)?
<= Read before using!
2. If you uninstall (a) IE7 *exactly* per the link below (which
automatically returns you to IE6), (b) all toolbars and (c) all third-party
Windows Themes (including Window Blinds) and do NOT reinstall IE7, does this
=> If it does, do NOT reinstall IE7 yet!
[Only use the Command %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe if you cannot
uninstall via Add/Remove Programs!]
IE7 (Un)Installation and Anti-Malware Applications:
3. Required reading IMHO before reinstalling IE7:
Sandi's Installation Tips <= Steps #1-8, #10 & #11; take note of #12, then
I strongly recommend using
installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.
Direct Download link:
Tip: Save the installer to your desktop, do not Run it.
4. Make *certain* that you check in at Windows Update immediately after
reinstalling IE7 to install any critical updates offered. If Optional
Updates category offers Root Certificates update, I recommend installing it
to take full advantage of IE7's additional security.
IMPORTANT! => IE and Windows XP Service Pack 3
