Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

IE7 freeze since security upgrade

After more than a year of no-problem use of IE7, last week I downloaded MS's security upgrade. Since then IE7 has repeatedly frozen up (at least once a day). Whan I "Tell MS about this error" it reports it as a Windows problem, but offers no solution except to check for updates (there are none). There doesn't seem to be any pattern in the type of site I am on when it freezes, this morning it was at nytimes.com, last night at a photographer's site, before that at my remote email site. I don't knowingly visit high risk sites, porn, gaming, online gambling, shopping, etc.

    I've run "restore" back to before the MS patch. I'll wait and see if it stops the freeze over the next few days and give more feedback. Thanks.

It was to patch some holes they have in the browser, there is a patch available and that may be causing the problem, but it is more likely a bug you picked up from this recent msft blunder. Try a "restore" and if it's not inconvienient it should fix the problem. Try running a spyware scan with Spybot search and destroy, it's free and most folks that use it swear by it, make sure that you get it fom them, as there are many websights that mimick their software and also charge people for a free program, good luck,Gym

I'm running XP Home SP3 with IE 6. Need to upgrade to later browser...7 or 8. Can I skip 7& go right to 8? Is this a good idea? My computer dates back to 2003?


It would be a good idea to upgrade from IE6 to IE8. There have been many security fixes and upgrades to IE since IE6 was released and even after IE7 too.

I would suggest upgrading to the latest version possible for your computer!

Replace internet explorer 8 with internet explorer 7


You need to find the old installation files for IE7, uninstall IE8, install IE7 and then make sure that automatic updates are switched off, otherwise Windows will update it to IE8 again automatically.

Are you sure you want to use IE7? IE8 is more secure.

In fact, Firefox is much more secure and faster than either IE7 or IE8.

Performance problems/slowdown wtih Internet Explorer 8?!?


Hi,
IE8 runs slightly slower than IE7 due to the fact that it has more built-in security features and additional features. Also, some antivirus softwares and too much unused / accumulated data in the form of temporary internet files and cookies in your PC slow-down the browsing experience.

To clean up temporary internet files, click on the Tools button on the IE toolbar, select Internet Options from the menu which comes up. Then on the General page, under Browsing History section click on Delete button. Then you can select the items which you want to delete, then click on Delete> click on OK.

You can also try Google Chrome browser which is one of the fastest browser. Download link: http://www.google.com/chrome

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks.

HELP! - Tabs in IE7 Keeps closing down or refreshing


Have you thought about updgrading to internet explorer 8? I personally use firefox now after years of being upset with internet explorer for various reasons, I believe it to be a superior browser to ie. If you are unable to upgrade from ie7 to ie8 because of license issues, firefox is not just a great alternative, but a superior alternative one should consider, IMHO.

Internet Exp 7 won't go to email


If you can access other web pages without a problem, try clearing out your cookies, one way is to click tools, internet options, then click delete, I would choose delete all unless your concerned about your passwords being saved. Another way is to go to www.filehippo.com and download ccleaner, install it, run it, click run cleaner, and just for good measure I would clean and fix the registry too!
