See IE7 Release Notes:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/aa740486.aspx
"Functionality Removed and Changed in Internet Explorer 7"

Active Desktop

Good luck,

Re: Web Desktop no longer works after installing IE8
Thanks Donald. My reading of this is that Vista (we're still resisting
downgrading to Vista!) does not support active desktop therefore all new
versions of applications, in this case IE8, will not provide active deskop
either. Makes sense except for the fact that, at least in this case, that is
not what the customer wants. Odd but suppose we'll have to live with it.
Thanks again.
