Welcome to the forum.
You might try Resetting IE7 to see if it will help you. You may have a
add-on in IE7 that is causing it to not work properly. When you are done
resetting, you can enable the add-ons one by one until you find out
which one is causing the problem.
1. Click *Tools* - *Internet Options*
2. Click *Advanced*
3. Click *Reset*
To Enable/Disable the add-ons one by one:
1. Click *Tools* - *Manage Add-ons* - *Enable or Disable Add-ons*
2. Under *Show*, change this to see the other listings of add-ons.
3. Just dot *Enable* or *Disable* at the bottom.
For the other 32 bit programs, you might try running them in
Compatibility Mode with *XP (SP2)* to see if they will run better. This
tutorial will show you how.
