    Using Windows XP Home Edition w/SP-2 and the final version of Internet
    Explorer 7 I have frequent screen freezes. When I use the reset button to
    restart the computer a scan is recommended. This most often results in IE 5
    file extensions being truncated. Does IE 7 require any IE 5 files or can
    they be safely uninstalled or deleted?

    You may have a horked install of IE7. I suggest reading the following

    Sandi's notes on "IE7 Gold", including Installation Tips

    ....and then uninstalling and reinstalling IE7 per Sandi's tips.

    I have uninstalled and redownloaded IE 7 and so far I haven't had a
    recurrence of the screen freezes. Also, Microsoft has reported recovery from
    serious errors due to an undetermined driver. I have just found and
    installed new drivers for two HP printers from Windows Update and hope this
    takes care of those serious errors. Now I have to see if I can print web
    pages in normal, readable size without adjusting Text Size in the View menu.
    Thanks very much to PA Bear.
