About a week ago IE 7.0 loaded and has wreaked havoc on my computer ever since. Mozilla Firefox lost it's mind, desktop icons were erased, powerpoint files were gone, download manager files were erased. I can do *.jpg, *.pps, etc. and everything is still there but buried. What will happen if I do a "system restore"?

Sounds to me like you got a virus. IE7 has been stable for a long time.

Only problem I've had with IE7 is it takes forever to close. :thumbsup:

If you do a system restore to before you download IE7 this will restore program files and uninstall anything thats been installed since that date you pick to restore to. basically resstoring it back to how it was on that date.

All you documents will be fine and wont be affected.

From the sounds of it tho i'd have to agree with cryptodan in regards to the issues may lie elsewhere. However if you want to do a system restore and if your still having issues then we can look into this. Also if you are infected a system restore is very unlikely to fix it.
