    About a week or so ago everytime I load my browser I started getting a
    webpage telling me that I need to download IE7 instead of my homepage. It
    appears to come from Microsoft. Here's the address
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx

    I checked my homepage - its still set to CNN. I deleted the cache and ran
    virus and spyware scans - it's still there every time I load my browser.

    I had been trying to avoiding IE7 but finally gave up and downloaded IE7
    hoping if I were running it, I would stop getting that webpage. It didn't
    work. I still get the exact same page, only it now also says "you are using
    Internet Explorer 7".

    What gives? How do I stop it?

    Hi,
    In Internet Options> Advanced> Browsing, uncheck "Automatically check for
    Internet Explorer updates."

    Hope this helps,

    I just looked at it and it wasn't checked. Do you have any other things I
    could try?
    Thanks, Wheels

    Hi,
    See if this is being caused by a browser add-on.
    See: http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp
    for troubleshooting information.
    More at:
    IEBlog Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:
    http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/07/25/678113.aspx

    Next, with the warnings that a reset will delete Autocomplete data (such as
    passwords) and you will have to re-enable browser add-ons, try the Reset IE
    Settings button in Internet Options> Advanced.
