Problems can result when add-ons you have installed, such as browser
toolbars, are damaged or conflict with Internet Explorer.
Run Internet Explorer 7 in 'No Add-Ons' mode:
If you have Vista: Start > type Internet Explorer in the Start Search
box > click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)
If you have XP: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools >
Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)
Alternatively, you can create a shortcut on your desktop with the
following target path:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff
If the problem does not occur in 'No Add-Ons' mode, then it's being
caused by one of the add-ons that you have installed. We can show you
how to identify which add-on is causing the problem.
Problems with Internet Explorer can also be caused by by malicious
software ('malware') that has been installed on your computer.
Before installing IE 7 you need to have carefully followed the
procedures described here:
If you did not follow these instructions you may have a damaged or
incomplete installation. Uninstall IE 7 (which automatically returns you
to your previous version of Internet Explorer) by following these
then follow the procedures described above and re-install IE 7. It's
better to download the IE 7 installer directly from Microsoft and
install from your hard disk (rather than going through Windows Update).
Note: If you installed Service Pack 3 after you installed IE 7, you will
have to remove SP 3 before you can remove IE 7.
