    I have just installed IE7 RC1 and it looks nothing like the screenshots. I
    have no tab feature, no nothing it looks exactly like IE6. My version number
    in 'About' is 7.0.5700.6.xpsp_sp2_gdr.05.0301-1519, while a colleague of mine
    who is running it fine has a version number of 7.0.5730.11.

    Whats going on? I have searched up and down google looking for a solution
    but it seeems i am on my own. Need some help please!

    Because when i installed the final IE ceased to work full stop. Everytime I
    tried to enter a URL it kept coming back with the error message

    "The requested lookup key was not found in any acrchive activation context"

    And didn't start working again till I managed to restore back to IE6.

    I never installed IE7 to fix anything! How would I know if there is a
    pre-existant problem when IE6 has always worked fine.

    So if it is a pre-existant problem what would cause IE7 to behave like this?
