    I have IE7 at work loaded on XP Pro. It works great. I have had absolutly
    no problems at all.
    I loaded it on my home computer using XP Pro through a wireless router to a
    DSL modem. I also worked without any problems at all.
    I recently loaded RC1 and have had severe problems with IE7. I thought it
    may have been because I used the upgrade option so I followed up with a clean
    install. Vista is working well with the only problem being that it doesn't
    recognize my sound driver. It loads but there is no sound. Anyway, to
    return to the subject;
    IE7 is constantly timing out. I cannot get to any of my 3 web based e-mails
    nor can I use the windows mail to check my bellsouth mail.
    I have tried to download IE6 so I can delete 7 & re-install but I cannot get
    to Microsoft's download page. I also cannot get to CNet, TuCows, or any
    other of the usual trusted sites I use.
    I also cannot get to any site with the prefix
    "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid= ". Any suggestions would be greatly

  2. No need. Just uninstall IE7 via Add/Remove Programs.
    Note: at least two reboots will be required and you should
    disable any software which might interfere with both procedures.
    However, if you have been relying only on a third-party firewall
    make sure that you at least enable the Windows firewall before
    connecting to the Internet.

    If you suspect your ISP's DNS you may want to try opening those links
    in steps. E.g. links such as that always involve a redirect. So, is the
    problem with that site or the one it redirects to?

    In fact, if you have too strict security settings which can affect certain methods
    of redirection you may already be seeing that effect. For example,
    if the page appears blank and Done appears in the Status bar
    you could try using View Source on it to see if it really is blank. Etc.
