Re: Internet Explorer &
Hi,
Well... without knowing what you've tried...

1. Do you need to reconfigure a third-party firewall to allow IE7 to access
the internet? Updates for IE can make IE appear to be a new program to a
software firewall. Some firewalls will recognize that IE7 is a new program
and will ask if it should be allowed access to the internet- some won't ask.

2. With the warning that a reset will delete autocomplete data, such as
passwords and you will have to reinstall browser add-ons, work through this
article:
936213- How to optimize or reset Internet Explorer 7:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936213/en-us

3. 926431- Error message when you start IE7 or try to access a website:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926431

4. Free installation and compatibility support is available for Windows XP
Service Pack 3 (SP3) until April 14, 2009.
See this page for more information:
http://support.microsoft.com/oas/def...3&gprid=522131

Hope this helps,
Don

Re: Internet Explorer &
If the ONLY change made was installing WinXP SP3 (i.e., you did NOT install
any Windows Updates after you'd installed SP3)...

Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
Windows XP, but only for Service Pack 3 (SP3), until 14 Apr-09. Chat and
e-mail support is available only in the United States and Canada. Go to
http://support.microsoft.com/oas/def...spx?gprid=1173 | select "Windows
XP" then select "Windows XP Service Pack 3"

WinXP SP3 - Read all prerequisites for a successful installation
