I have just recently reformatted and reinstalled Windows XP Pro on one of my PCs.
All is well, however, apart from the setup of Internet Explorer 7.
It has been installed okay, yet all I get at the moment is a screen that comes up and says "Customize Your Settings".
This screen has options on there such as setting a default search provider, selecting Clear Type, selecting the language for use with IE7, and whether to participate in the Customer Experience Program.
Having selected the options that I want, it says "Applying Settings", yet nothing happens after that!!!
I should mention that script debugging is disabled in the Options as well as displaying a notification about every scripting error, yet at the bottom of the page, it says that there is an error on this page?
Could this be affecting things or not, and what can I do to get out of this endless loop?
Please reply to let me know - all responses gratefully received.
Your first link is indeed the screen that I get!!! - even though I click on all of the options and press Save, there is still a script error at the bottom of the page. I will try both of the options as you have suggested after I get home from work tonight.
I will report back with some answers in due course...thanks again.
