Check your homepage settings ....IE7 could be looking for a non-existent or mispelt site

Tried it still not working, it keeps saying it cannot display the web page. Have tried unistall and reinstalled still will not work and even my Incredimail is not working properly

Try,Start,Set Program Access and defaults.Custom.Dot Internet Explorer as default web browser,See if that helps.

If that does not work,Try,Tools,Internet Options,Advanced,And click restore advanced settings,That has worked for a few with the same problem,Worth a try.

What Firewall and anti-virus are you using,Try with the firewall turned off,See if that helps.If you are back on IE6 you could try Skidzy's click here solution.
