[Only use the Command
%windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe if you cannot uninstall via Add/Remove

2b. Disable all Norton Add-ons, if applicable.
3. Reinstall IE7 EXACTLY per
<= Steps #1-8, #10 &
#11; take note of #12, then STOP!
NB: Use http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/default.mspx
installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.
Or Direct Download link:
Tip: Save the installer to your desktop, do not Run it.
4. IMMEDIATELY go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
and install any
critical updates offered. If a "Root Certificates" update is listed in the
Optional category, install it to take full advantage of IE7's additional
