I installed it and it runs fine. I did have to hack the registry to make the homepage come up instead of the run once page it could never find (probably due to some of my security settings).

I would suspect security software that is conflicting with the browser. The run once page that it looks for leads me to beleive that this could be a big issue when more people start using IE7.

Not being one of Microsofts biggest fans I've got to say this is pretty impressive. I realy liked that it didn't set itself to default like most of MS software does and it doesn't even ask. Nice look to. I'll have to play with it awhile to see if it's worth using.

Run through this then try IE 7

Prefetch is clickable for more information

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up


Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run defragmenter

Download, install and run
Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Disable the anti virus programme then click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Check the anti virus programme is running

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

Click optimize and improve then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

IE 7 can be removed from control panel, add and remove
