RE: problems with internet explore

I've noticed that too and from what I've read it's a Microsoft issue, but then it depends on what you read.

What McAfee products do you have? If your taskbar icon is like this: - right-click it and go to each application "About" and post the details.
If it is like this: - double-click to open SecurityCenter and then click "View Details" or "About" at the lower right of the new window. Post the details from each module.

Do you have any other protection/security software?

Try the following:

If you are running Internet Explorer 7 go to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click the Reset button. OK and exit, close and reopen IE7.
You will have to-enable all the browser add-ons.

If Internet Explorer 6 - go to Tools/Internet Options..
General tab: clear cookies, history and temporary files
Security tab: set all zones to default
Content tab: disable Content Advisor
Advanced tab: set to default. OK and exit.


Scan you machine for malware using the free version of this tool: http://www.superantispyware.com/supe...freevspro.html

If all that fails to help then try this tool:

run IEREGFIX - http://download.mcafee.com/products/...s/IERegFix.bat
and then IEFIX - http://windowsxp.mvps.org/utils/IEFix.zip
