Is Pentium 4 compatible with IE7?

  Sabi 21:40 03 Dec 2006


As I am not a computer expert I need to run something by you guys :-)

I checked the details for IE7 download. It says the minimum requirements for the processor should be 2.33 MHz. I have Pentium 4 (1.70GHZ) Does that mean I can download the software???

Many thanks

its 233MHz not 2.33 so your PC is, lets say 5x more capable ..

Yes, it should be fine - I've seen it on PCs with 1Ghz processors running ok.

Yes no problem, it says 233mhz, your processor in Mhz is 1700.

What SANTOS7 says makes more sense...

there will be no problem but you will need to go through the validity check - jarani

How do you mean by "going through the validity check"???



  SANTOS7 21:56 03 Dec 2006

Its a process before installing any microsoft generated software of Validating your Operating system to see if it is genuine, if you have already done this you will have no problem..

I think it means it will want to check your operating system, meaning that its valid and registered with Microsoft.

Santos & explorer answered it for me - it is just a thought if you have a problem - good luck - jarani
