RE: IE version old messages when I am running IE 7
Thanks for the reply.
I will try to answer your questions below:

showing us screens saying that the web page we were looking for was not
availavle, and refreshing was not successful in fixing the problem. As it
was unusable after all attempts to fix it, we decided to re-set it.
We are running WinXP v5.1.2600, SP3
The IE we are running says it is version 7.0.5730.13
The firewall we are running is Panda Antivirus/Firewall 2008 version 7.0
