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
936213- How to optimize or reset Internet Explorer 7:
3. 926431- Error message when you start IE7 or try to access a website:
4. Free installation and compatibility support is available for Windows XP
Service Pack 3 (SP3) until April 14, 2009.
