Four weeks ago IE7 stopped loading. I have tried all Microsoft routes as well as many options from browsing - it seems that IE7 had problems when it first arrived with the runonce facility but before this problem I was able to acess.

I don't appear to have any spyware or viruses as everything else works well (including Firefox), though the startup is on average quite slow.

I would really like to look into the connection or security settings in Internet Options in more detail. I vaguely remember following instructions on a website about a proxy before I realised that was unnecessary and I think I reset anything I had changed. I did, however, use the RIES which I thought would fix any settings that were wrong.

I have posted to the HijackThis Log forum a few days ago but I think I may be on the wrong track with regards malware.

If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.

I run Vista SP1, IE7 and Firefox 3.0. I have Spybot and AVG free version for security.

Have you tried uninstalling IE7 and reinstalling it?


To look at Internet Options in more detail;
Start/Control Panel/Network & Internet/Internet Options, click on tabs Connections and Programs

Hope this helps

Thanks Adamsapple, I found a proxy setting in connections which I have now removed.
