IE7, IE6 Problems, Fixes

First off, if you upgraded XP from Service Pack 1 (SP1) to Service Pack 2 (SP2) and did not start out with SP2, DO NOT UPGRADE TO IE7! It will not work! It will open, display “Connecting”, but go nowhere and, to add insult to injury, be unable to uninstall or roll back. The only two options if you have already installed IE7 in this situation is to use another browser instead such as Firefox or reinstall XP with SP2.

Like I mentioned before, if you want to use Roxio’s DVD Builder, it WILL NOT WORK with IE7. You have to uninstall it for Roxio to work, but once you do, some of the features of IE7 stick around like the much-hated clipboard paste dialog box. Also, the new version of Blogger does not work in IE6 after rolling back from IE7. However Firefox works with it and that is what I am using now. A caveat about Firefox though, I do not reccommend upgrading to 2.0 yet.
