I have been using Internet Explorer 7 since launch with no problems. On wednesday evening as the PC shut down it installed some Microsoft updates that had been downloaded automatically earlier. The PC was not used on Thursday at all. Last night (friday) when the computer was booted IE wasn't working - all I could get was 'Page cannot be displayed' errors. I can still access Windows update and my antivirus (PC-cillin) will also update as normal. I have installed Firefox today and that works fine (I am using it now). Does anyone have any ideas why IE has suddenly stopped working.
Could the Microsoft updates have corrupted my copy of IE? I could carry on using Firefox but other members of the household are less computer literate and prefer Internet Explorer as they are used to it. If anyone has any suggestions I would be grateful.
