    When I attempt to open IE 7(default site is google.ca) on a Vista OS it opens
    the window and then immediately closes. I just get a File Download Security
    Warning. It looks something like this:

    FILE DOWNLOAD-SECURITY WARNING

    Do you want to save this file?

    Name: navcancl

    Type: Unknown File Type, 2.64KB

    From: ieframe.dll

    SAVE CANCEL

    The file you are downloading cannot be opened by the default
    program. It is either corrupted or it has an incorrect file type. As a
    security precaution, it is recommended that you cancel the
    download. How can I decide what software to open?

    This started when I updated IE7 from the Microsoft site.

    I can use Mozilla Firefox as a browser. When I make Mozilla the default
    browser, The message shown above changes as follows:

    Name: google.htm

    Type: Firefox Document

    From: www.google.ca

    I have emptied temporary files, history, cookies, saved passwords, and web
    form information. I have deleted any ActiveX add-ons and disabled the rest.
    None of this helps.

    How do I get IE7 back?

    Hi,

    If you use Vista and have a similar kinda issue of latest KB931768, which
    cause IE7 stopped working with a popping up window, indicating some navcancl
    & ieframe.dll related issue, you may follow my instruction to fix that. IMO,
    this issue is caused by a non-default temporary internet files' folder.

    0. Check my previous thread to see if you have the same issue as I had.
    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/co...0568699BF823&lang=en&cr=US&sloc=en-us&m=1&p=1

    1.Maybe you need to change the folder options in control panel -> folder
    options and turn off those hiding system & hidden files related settings.

    2. Access control panel -> internet options -> general->history section->
    settings, to see if your Temporary Internet Files folder is in its default
    folder. The default folder should be like :
    C:\Users\%USER_NAME%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet
    Files (default folder may vary in WindowsXP)

    3. If it is not in a default folder format, change it to
    C:\Users\%YOUR_USER_NAME%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\. IE7 will
    automatically copy the temp files to
    C:\Users\%YOUR_USER_NAME%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet
    Files by restarting windows.

    4. Reapply the KB931768 patch ,if you have uninstalled it and turn on your
    phishing filer. Restart IE7 to see if it works.

    You will need to do a restore to before the up date was installed. I had the
    same thing happen to me. MS has a problem with the update !

    From a related thread in Windows Update newsgroup:

    <QP>
    The problem has been solved by me. Simply restore the temporary internet
    files folder to the default folder and everything is working just fine!

    For detail See:
    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/co...a82cd63&cat=&lang=en&cr=US&sloc=en-us&m=1&p=1
    </QP>

    The default location in WinXP is typically C:\Documents and
    Settings\[Username]\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.
