:thumbsup:

I use AT&T YAHOO DSL service. recent downloads included a Yahoo version of IE 7. After the skanky version downloaded, I lost the ability to access Internet Options via the Tool link in the browser. Tried going through Control Panel, but when I click on Internet options there, you can see a window open then immediately close. I dont know any other ways to access these options. Could someone help? Thanks

FYI...using Win XP Pro sp 2, AVG Virus Protect, Adaware malware detection

Hi candiv,

You should only download Internet Explorer 7, or any other Windows Tools or Utilities from a Microsoft web site.

Uninstall IE7 via Add/Remove programs and reinstall it from this link: Windows Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP SP2
A system restore should not be necessary.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

thanks all for the ideas. I have tried system restore with no results, and I am afraid that if I remove Yahoo! IE 7 to convert back to standard IE 7 I wont have a browser to surf over to the microsoft site WITH... :thumbsup:

sorry for the delay. been away from my 'puter for a couple of days
