Have just installed the upgrade from ver 6 to Internet Explorer ver 7. I have my home page set up but when clicking on IE7, the first page to come up is blank with the following script.

An HTTP error occurred while getting:
click here
Details: "connect timed out".

If I then click on home page icon, my home page loads. Anyone know why and how to stop this?

Title of thread should refer to IE 7

make sure your firewall is not blocking IE7

You can stop this error message appearing - In IE got to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced and uncheck Show Friendly HTTP Error Messages.

Thanks to Gandalf on a similar thread, I downloaded and ran the "Run Once " delete program which fixed the problem.
Thanks Gandalf.
