Anyone else having issues with IE7?

Recommended Posts

Well I installed IE7 final from microsoft.com/ie last night and the problems began almost immediately.  Outlook started doing some really weird stuff and then finally the process locked entirely.  Since installation I have had to reboot my pc for this or that weird thing 7 or 8 times....so bad...just did a full system restore to get rid of it.

I would have tried IE7 but Windows ME doesn't meet the system requirements for  it.So I will have to stick with IE6.

A hint on installing any IE .Ctrl+Alt+Delete to close everythin but Explorer & systray before starting the update.Then do as few items as it will let you with a custom install.Then restart & keep doing this till IE has everthing you want installed.

Especially do this with Outlook Express.

I found if I let it do the standard install on its own it almost always screws up.
