If you do not have the "General" tab, perhaps you have to reinstall IE7. Are you using the beta version ?

Not running beta....Right now I am considering deleting EI-7, and downloading it again..If this does not work, I will go back to IE-6 which I was comfortable with in the past...Thanks for your interest in my problem.

try going to the Windows update page to update your system after you have removed your present IE7. You will need XP with SP2.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
