ok I ask a silly question.. have you tried going to Tools>Windows Update to see if there are any patches or packs for IE7, alternatively going to the MS website for IE7 for updates?
or would you be interested in trying an alternative browser for example Firefox that does not suffer the endless problems that IE7 have (unfortunate but true). no need to uninstall IE7, you can keep it and try alternatives if you have ongoing difficulties with IE7
However, go ahead and look for updates, but you could also try running your antivirus software to see if it is a bug.
What I have suggested is just a starting point to investigating your issues as I don't know what you have already tried to fix this issue...
