Yesterday I tried to start ie7 on my windows xp system. What it did was just the hour glas was running and then stopped and nothing happened. In the task list iexplorer is shown. Rebooting the system did not solve the problem. Unfortunately I cannot remember doing anything strange before this has happended. What can be the cause? And what is the possible remedy.

Click “Start,” and then click “Control Panel.”

Click “Add or Remove Programs.”

Check “Show Updates” at the top of the dialog box.

Scroll down the list to “Windows XP – Software Updates,” select “Internet Explorer 7,” and then click "Change/Remove."

Removing IE7 rolls your computer back to IE6
If the above allows IE 6 to run properly and you want to reinstall IE7, read the recommended actions to take before installing in the link below.

If IE is the only browser you have installed on your computer, I would suggest strongly that you install Firefox.
