Long story so I will be succinct:
Upgraded to IE 7 no problems vast improvement over IE 6. Then loaded patch and problems started that affected my laptop. Used restore points sevral times which seem to sort it for a while I then found for whatever reason tthere were no restore points!
Used XP disc to repair and downlaoded all patches, new version of Zone Alarm creating restore points at each stage.
As only version of IE working was IE 6 and when I tried to access Microsofts website I would get cannot access address (null)... and the laptop seemed to open up to 20 sets of the web page. I thought i would attempt another IE 7 download.
Download OK, installation just hung for 15 minutes. Tried again same problem..CPU usage also seems to jump to very high levels......
I am now at a bit of a loss...........

Rather than type out possible solutions, go click here for IE7 install tips. Start reading at the section named ‘Before installing IE7.
