Update for Internet Explorer 7

Microsoft quietly fixes the antiphishing filter in Internet Explorer 7

If you've disabled the antiphishing filter in Internet Explorer 7, you're not alone. The filter, as it currently works, takes something short of forever to process each site, deciding whether to mark it as safe for viewing or suspect as a potential phishing site. In response, Microsoft has quietly issued a service update for users of Internet Explorer 7 for XP and Windows Vista, running on Windows Vista (all editions, including x64 editions), Windows XP SP2, Windows XP Professional x64, Windows Server 2003 SP1, and Windows Server 2003 SP1 x64 editions.
