Recently, Ive had to reformat my computer after a massive virus took over my computer. And now Ive been trying to return all the programs that ive had on previously.

Internet Explorer 7 was my favourite web browser, dont ask me why I just like its design, so I tried to put it on again. And so everytime I install Internet Explorer 7, and then reboot the computer (as it says to do) when I log back into my account, Only the background appears And a message appears telling me that windows explorer needs to shut down. And whence I Uninstall IE7, All is good.

Im running on XPSP2. And I installed Internet Explorer 7 directly off the microsoft website. And Currently Im using Internet Explorer 5.

It is suggested that you reboot twice after installing IE7. There is a good article on trouble shooting IE7, you can find it here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Is there some reason you have to use IE7 ? You said you just like the look.
There are better browsers such as Firefox, that don't have the inherent problems that IE has.

I personally have IE 7, I tried IE 8, but didn't like it. I too currently have problems with IE so using Yahoo Browser. About to install Firefox on this laptop. I have it on desktop.

Also, your running SP 2...is there a reason you haven't upgraded to SP3 ?

You also, need to look for some of the threads that reference similar problems
and the most rceent Hotfixes (Patches) for very recent IE vulnerabilities.

IE is experiencing alot of redirect problems right now and Java Scripting problems (there is a thread for that as well).

What was the serious virus you said you recovered from?

Personally, I don't think you should be using IE7 cause it's causing most of the vulerabilities in Windows OS's... Only thing to tell you is to try to re-dl it or use Firefox/Safari/Opera.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

The reason I need IE7, firstly is because I do prefer it over firefox (please dont come kill me), But secondly I need to be able to use it so fluently that I rememeber all the shortcuts and such for my IT class.

And about SP3... I actually didnt know they had made a new service pack until very recently. Are they any new befefits from it? Cause I'll proabably get that anyways.

The virus that i had was that I couldnt access any anti virus websites or the microsoft website. And apparently My computer was giving off spam, and my internet provider said I needed to either pay a proffessional IT guy to come and check my comp, or I could reformat my comp. I took the latter.
