IE7 problems

by pm_41-2121371898026113159 / October 17, 2007 1:19 PM PDT

IE will not even display certain web sites (Microsoft Update, ect.). Is there a way or a FREE tool to correct IE errors or restore it to the point when it was first installed?

System Restore may work, but tell us more.

You say IE7 will not display certain web sites. Why not, what does IE7 say when you try?

"Certain web sites" suggests IE7 will display other web sites. So it doesn't look as if IE7 is broken.

What else is happening on your computer? Have you had any virus or spyware problems lately? Do you have a firewall and any anti-virus and anti-spyware protection installed? If so, which ones, and how often do you scan with them?

Does Automatic Updates work?

Get rid of IE7's BHO's, (Browser Help Objects) and see if that helps. Google will help you find out what BHO's are and you can also look up BHODemon to remove them.

The pages are just blank. Here's a screenshot:

I just tried to reinstall it. The URL is the first-run config page.

System Restore won't even load.

Automatic Updates will work if they're new updates, but it detects them about 2 days - 1 week after they're released.

Any way to fix this?

P.S. I don't want to format my drive.

The patch didn't work...Well, I guess it worked a bit. The page title now displays correctly in the title bar. But the web pages are still blank.

Any other ideas?

Now that I've thought about it, I have been having this problem for a few months now. I've tried System Restore in Safe Mode before. Same problem. I've never noticed this problem until now because I've been using Firefox all this time.

Could all this be somehow connected?
