Browsing almost dead on IE7 RC1

by eterrestrial / October 19, 2006 12:19 AM PDT

few days back, i think, i made a mistake of installing RC1 for IE7 because of tabbed browsing. now since that very day the browsing seems to have gone literally dead on my machine.

I havent done anything else apart from installing this RC1 for IE 7.

I can hardly browse pages and all the time major errors are that it "TIMED OUT"

Please help me as it takes ages to open up a page.

Go to and download the final release of IE7. RC1 has a timer on it that expired or will expire soon.
