If you can find the applied update list, you can find the most recent
update that you installed for IE7 and uninstall it. If this fixes the
problem, then you can always block that update from being installed.
To find your applied update list, please follow these steps:
1) Click on your Start Menu, and proceed to your "Control Panel".
2) Click on the "Security" menu within your control panel.
3) Go to "View Installed Updates" under the "Windows Update"
4) Remove the update of which is effecting your IE7, and restart
Hopefully this will fix your problem. If it persists, I would say do a
complete reinstall of IE7 from scratch.
