Internet Explorer / IE >> IE 7 doesn't seem to work.

I installed IE 7.0 onto my computer and now when ever I launch it the window
opens up briefly and then closes. The first time it opened up it asked me if
It could be the default browser.

My computer is Windows XP professional with all of the current Windows
updates.

When I uninstall IE 7.0, the old IE works normally.

I tried deleting my internet files and setting the default settings.

I tried adding and removeing IE from windows components.

I even tried running an anti-spy / ad ware product to see if that would help.

I don't think there is anything special about my computer.

Any ideas would be appreciated.


Thanks!

Classic symptom of possible incompatibility with BHO.
IE7 has a new Sysem Tools menu option (No Add-ons)
Close down all instances of iexplore.exe (and verify that
it is no longer running e.g. using Task Manager's Processes tab)
and then try starting IE with the No Add-ons option.

BTW that appears to be equivalent to Run...

"%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

Perhaps you should try uninstalling any alternate browsers
you have then (as a test.)


Good luck
