    The ABout box for IE 7 (on windows XP SP3) does not open, also the advance
    options box is completely blank- when I click on enable advanced options, IE
    crashes. Has anyone seen this problem? Any suggestions? thanks

    Hi,
    Try the solutions on these pages:
    About box is blank

    Advanced tab is blank:

    - - -
    But, the presence of both problems suggests that a reinstall of IE7 may be
    necessary.
    Important notes:
    1. If SP3 was installed after IE7, you should uninstall SP3 before
    uninstalling IE7.
