    I installed IE 8 Beta over my IE 7 installation. IE8 did not play well with
    Mcafee yet. When I installed IE8 which returned me to 7, I found that now
    when I open my home page it has no tabs, and I have to click on my home icon
    to get it to go to another window which will show a new window with IE and
    the original tab set. It is like there is a second item that is not allowing
    IE7 to open to the tab set I originally used with no problems.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Arty

    => Was McAfee VirusScan, etc., running in the background when you installed
    and/or uninstalled IE8 Beta 2?

    => Does this behavior persist if you start IE7 in No Add-ons mode? To start
    IE7 in No Add-ons mode:

    1. Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without Add-ons;
    or

    2. Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet Explorer
    (No add-ons).

    => Does the problem persist if you Reset IE7 Advanced settings (RIES)?
