Re: IE 7 deployment issues
9 times out of 10, such issues are caused by real-time protections (e.g.,
anti-virus; anti-spyware; some third-party firewalls) that were running in
the background when IE7 was installed.
Required reading IMHO before installing IE7:
Sandi's Installation Tips <= Steps #1-8, #10 & #11; take note of #12, then
(ignore any references to Vista)
