    I got my guts up to try IE7 Beta 3 on XP SP2. Previously, I was running IE6
    with an installed Yahoo Toolbar with Pop-up Blocker from Y!Messenger 7.5, and
    with the other stuff installed (Browser Services, Mail and Install Manager
    AFAIK?). Maybe I should have uninstalled those, but I didn't, because I
    thought it would be fine, and it wasn't listed on the release notes. Then I
    installed IE7 B3.

    After installation, I couldn't get Quick Tabs, or even normal Tabs to work.
    The Command Bar doesn't show up. Enabling an Explorer Bar would crash IE7 B3
    (Sorry, forgot the module name where it fails... ^_^). First I tried
    disabling all add-ons through the Advanced Options (RIES?), maybe it would
    go. But no go. So I tried de-installing the Yahoo add-ons except Messenger.
    Still no go. And so, I tried de-installing and re-installing IE7 B3.

    After re-installation, I tried fiddling around with the Tabbed Browsing
    Options. Disabling it would enable the Command Bar, and the other Explorer
    Bars (Favorites, Research...). Now I am running it with Tabs disabled. I
    haven't tried running it with Tabs on since.

    This is just fairly recent, around 3 days ago. No previous IE7 Beta running
    experience. PC is a loaner one. MS Software installed is MSO 2003 and now,
    IE7 B3. Add-ons, well, are the common Flash, Acrobat Reader and Java ones.

    Understandable as it is running a BETA vs a STABLE version, I just got
    curious and asked. Maybe someone else has this thing goin' on.

    Thanks for your time.

    I assume a 'test' administrator account is also showing the same symptoms?

  3. I would uninstall IE7 , which will bring back IE6. Then download it again
    and install it with your anti=virus turned off.
