IE7 Falling Apart in Vista

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by 2Technical4Me, Jul 21, 2006.

  1. Last weekend IE7 as provided in Vista will not fully execute. The program
    starts, will not show any site and will not allow access to any menus. The
    browser will take a higher amount of cpu, enough to drag down the performance
    of my laptop (Athlon64, 3200+, 1GB RAM) until I kill the process. Memory use
    remains at zero for IE.

    Is there a way to repair this?

  4. Do you have any third party toolbars installed?

  6. I can't think of anything else unless you have some other Internet program

  7. Some other items as I play with this...

    - The frame of the window seems too larg... the handles in the upper right
    for minimizing, closing, and maxinizing seem to be slightly off the screen,
    - The browser has to be killed. I suppose this may put a damper on updates.
    - I cannot right click to set up the browser toolbars, etc and get a
    response. There is nothing. I can right click on the window frame at the top
    and minimize, etc...

    Perhaps it is time for a reload of the OS......
