It was because of IE7 the solution is to uninstall IE7 using the following command on the START -> RUN
This uninstalled IE7 and makes it so that you can reinstall it later.
Hope this helps
LostKanuk, is this method of uninstalling more "complete" than uninstalling through the Control Panel? I did my uninstall through the Control Panel and it seemed to have worked, but did not ultimately solve the problem. I reinstalled IE7 through my Windows XP disc and the same problem occurred.
If you look at my post above, I found another site saying that if uninstalling and reinstalling IE7 doesn't work, you might need to wipe your computer and start over...which is what I had to do. -.- At least you can back up files and such if you have to go that route. But no one wants to go through reinstalling all their software again, so I was just wondering if there was a "better" way of uninstalling and reinstalling programs?
In any case, it seems this problem occurs when one is installing or reinstalling windows.
