IE7 Only works first time after installation.

    IE7 was installed on my machine by automatic update.

    While IE6 was working flawlessly, IE7 is not doing so.

    First time after installing all is fine after setting prefered search,
    language etc, it works fine and I can access all of the usual sites I look at.

    The problems come when the next time I run IE7, after exiting it previously.
    It is then impossible to look at anything, all pages just come up with
    'Internet Explorer cannot display the Webpage", and sometimes "The address is
    invalid".

    The only way I have found round this is to use the 'reset' option in the
    'Advanced' tab of 'Internet Explorer'. After exiting and then restarting I
    then get the usual startup pages and have to go all through the setup of
    prefered search, language etc. Then I can access the internet.

    But after exiting the same problem occurs on the next startup, nothing is
    accessible.

    IE6 never had these problems, and FireFox works just fine, at the same time
    that IE7 is having problems. IE7 is not suffering from this problem on my
    other machine. The 'check you connection is working properly' thing, says
    that no problems with the connection can be found.

    Something happens when exiting, that means the next time IE7 starts, it
    doesn't work properly.

    I have tried starting with No Add-ons but that doesn't solve the problem.

    I would not classify myself as a computer wiz.

    Do any of you experts out there know what is going on, and how it can be
    solved?

    Thanking you in advance for your assistance with this matter.

    automatic updates is not the best way to install this. go to
    www.microsoft.com/ie. uninstall the first copy first in add/remove
    programs
