    IE 7
    Windows XP Home SP3

    When I try to download a file from the Internet I get the Dialog,
    "Application Not Available."

    Also, when I type a website address in the Address Box (Example
    www.google.com") I also get the message, "Application Not Available.

    I have gone through virus and malware scans and found nothing.

    Any ideas ? ?

    Do you have the same experience when you start Internet Explorer from
    the 'no add-ons' icon?

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer
    (No Add-Ons)

    Do you have the same experience after you have reset Internet Explorer
    settings?

    Is IE7 configured as your default Browser in Set Program Access and Defaults
    (CUSTOM section)?

    I was able to open IE with no add-ons . . . and since the Home Page was MSN
    I clicked on IE 8, downloaded and installed this latest version. I don't
    know what caused my previous problems but am now happily surfing the net
    again.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
