Pancake, I'll be happy to post any solution if I shoud stumble on a workaround. I, like you, would like to install the latest version, but not until it's working a lot better than this one is on my system. Like you, I was unwilling to try the Kelly's fix until someone could confirm it wouldn't mess things up even worse.
Glad you were able to revert to IE6 successfully (not everyone has) and that your H & S is working once again.
I went to WindowsUpdate and unchecked the IE7 offering under Custom Install and checked the Do Not Show This Update Again
box. Thanks for sharing Microsoft's phone response with members. Not surprised, personally. When they have "the kinks worked out" I'll go back & unhide
it and give it a second chance. For now, I turned off Automatic Updates & will check manually everyday for any updates to insure
it doesn't try to install itself. I also installed the Tool to Block the Auto Install of IE7, just to be safe, available at :http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en
