To buteman. Sorry not to have got back sooner. I have checked for SP3 in Add/Remove programs and of all the programs and updates that are there, not one makes reference to SP3. Also I noticed that there is no Change/Remove button to roll back IE7 even if I wanted to. Should I be concerned about this? In microsoft Review Your Update History The only reference to SP3 (KB936929) is greyed out under status.
In the tools drop-down, nothing happens when Internet Options is clicked. It tries to open, but disappears after a split second. The same happens in Control Panel when the icon is d/clicked. Not that I expected anything different, but we try these things, don't we.
All help to resolve the Internet Options Issue will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you provider 2 and buteman. Will try suggestions and get back. buteman. Tried S/R a couple of days ago before I installed 7 MS updates, but not in S/mode. I couldn't restore no matter how far back I went.
[Dug this up from another Forum,It is supposed to fix Internet Options.I think you are supposed to copy and paste it.!!! Yes it works. The problem is with the inetcpl.cpl file that Microsoft updated on my computer. In short here are the instructions for dealing with the inetcpl.cpl file:
Copy File From C:\WINDOWS\ie7\inetcpl.cpl Copy File To C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetcpl.cpl
The copy From file is 350 KB; it will replace the 1775 KB file.
