hi, yesterday i installed a fresh copy of Win XP Pro with SP2 on my computer.

i used windows update 2 update stuff, eg. IE7.

But then... when i open my computer and go to my file structure, it's OK, but when i click close.. IE 7 opens and i get a error message: http://www1.filehost.to/files/2007-03-20_0...4923_error2.jpg

also IE 7 has trouble closing too (long time before it actually closes)

i don't think its a virus or anything, because i just installed it the day before.

thxs.

Maybe some files were corrupted during the install.

I would recommend running check disk (chkdsk) and the system file checker (sfc).

Chkdsk

Sfc

Go to Control Panel--Add Remve and Uninstall IE 7
You will revert back to IE 6.
Stay with that for 3 or 4 days and see if it corrects itself.
Also you can contact Microsoft and they will send you a CD to install SP2. I recommend this because it gives you more control over how much is installed. There are several things that you will not need in the Pack.

Here is the link to have them send you the CD. Look at the box on the lower right hand side

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/sp2/default.mspx

Post back and lete us know how it goes.

Thank You Jitaa :thumbsup:

Maybe yes....maybe no. :thumbsup:

Sometimes the reversion to IE6 will "clear" the issues with IE7 - and you'll be able to upgrade to IE7 without issues. Sometimes you'll just be stuck with the problem. From what little I've seen, the reversion to IE6 will usually fix the issues and IE7 will work well - but the only way to find out is to try it.

I agree with USAMA. I have had members uninstall IE7 and latr do a reinstall and they had no problems.
As with any install make sure that you go to the Authors site to install or a site that is trusted and secure. I have seen installs that have had third party apps. with them.
As always read the Privacy Policy if you are not familiar with the install.

Thank you Jitaa :thumbsup:
