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, 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

Perhaps you were downloading the NET Framework 2.0, which is a system-related component and helps mostly with Microsoft-related desktop and online applications.
However, I don't believe NET can be the cause of your PC's unreliable performance. Make sure you always keep your security in check, check this short text on how to use free software to beef up your computer security and protect yourself from viruses, spyware and hacker attacks.
Then, regularly clean up your computer from unused software by uninstalling stuff you don't use, and lastly perform Disk Defragmentation (Right-click the C-drive in Windows Explorer, chose Properties-Tools and click Defragment).
Do the security checkup and disk defragmentation at least once a month and that should take care of any security issues and performance lags.

If this text was informative and helpful, please reward it with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

I would guess that your default settings have changed for some reason.
the easiest way will be to uninstall IE7 and re-install it again. that will take few minutes and everything will work for you:
1. go to :
2. download the file and save it to your desktop
3. go to Control panel --> add/remove software--> remove IE7
4. install IE7 again

I found lots of problem with Ie7,what I personal do is
1.I have a second option for my Browser, that is I install mozilla
firefox.I use it for my default browser.You can download it here

2.I downgrade my IE7 to IE6 by going to ADD/Remove program
and uninstall IE7.After that your IE7 will become IE6
** Windows default is IE6,if you uninstall IE7,your system will become IE6 Automatically.

Best is to try the first step,I think this will help to solve your problem.

Monitor not working

Use a legitimate serial code to activate your Windows again. This is a built in protection system from Microsoft which simply disable some features to "punish" you for using an illegal version.

Won't open after upgrading to IE7

Many programs are not yet compatible with IE7. As an ISP we are not recommending people to upgrade to this version yet. I have IE7 on my system and know that it is not compatible with many websites and that I have various other problems because of the installation. Personally, I am going to remove it from my system for now.
