Hi guys,the problem is when i click on Internet Options,either from Control Panel or Tools in IE7 nothing happens.Could it be something to do with either Reg Scrub XP or Advanced Windows Care.I say this as these were the last 2 programs i used before the problem occured.

Try a system restore & see what happens.

Hi, I suppose it could be, but could also be another IE7 problem. If you uninstall IE7 in Control Panel Add/Remove you will automatically revert to IE6 - see if Internet Options works in IE6. You can always re-install IE7, if it is not the problem.

Try running the system file checker

Start/run and type sfc /scannow (note the space /)

You may need your xp disc if not preinstalled.
