    I.E. version; - because the last update has seized up my system! -
    associated I think with D.E.P.

    You cannot selectively stop "Auto Updates" for IE" automatically.

    Have you uninstalled the last "Auto Update" for IE or...?

    Do you think there might be a way to resolve any such DEP issues without
    "stopping Auto Updates" for IE?

    Cumulative Security Update sfor IE are usually released every two months so
    the next one is expected in April. As it, too, will be a cumulative update
    (includes everything in all previous updates), are you planning on
    refraining from installing all further updates & leaving your system subject
    to all of the security vulnerabilities addressed by these updates?

    If you want assistance with your problem, whatever it may be, please state
    your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2; Vista SP1;
    Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) as well as your IE version.

    You should be more worried about your unpatched, vulnerable computer!
    (Remember the Google vs. China brou-ha-ha 2 weeks ago? Well, KB978207
    addresses that security vulnerability!

    It doesn't matter what browser you use, IE is part & parcel of Windows and
    must be kept fully-patched at all times.

    Is KB978207 installed or not?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed (and/or uninstalled) IE7, IE8, and/or
    SP3?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    I think my problem started when I updated with KB978207, which I removed
    when I removed IE8.

    I have Norton Internet Security installed and fully uptodate with all its
    protection;I also get some protection from my ISP.

    Always used N.I.S.

    No, and CrystalBall© tells me that "the problem" was getting "Page cannot be
    displayed" errors after installing KB978207...

    Error message after you install a Windows Internet Explorer update from
    Windows Update or from Microsoft Update: "Webpage cannot be displayed":
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942818

    If tweaking your third-party firewall's settings [i.e., Norton Personal
    Firewall] don't help, try the following:

    1. Disable all NIS components (i.e., anti-virus; anti-spyware, any Norton
    Add-ons; firewall) AND THEN enable the Windows Firewall.

    NB: You're "working without a net" now: Don't to ANYTHING else online (e.g.,
    browsing; reading email; chatting) except #4 below until your anti-virus
    application has been re-enabled! If you're running ZA Free firewall, you
    may need to uninstall it instead of disabling it.

    [If KB978207 is not installed, skip to Step #4 now!]

    2. Uninstall "Security Update for Windows Internet Explorer 7 [or 8]
    (KB978207)" via Add/Remove Programs (make sure Show Updates box is checked
    at top right) and reboot.

    3. Re-do #1 above.

    4. Open Internet Explorer (only) to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com |
    Select CUSTOM and scan | Install any Critical Security Updates offered
    (e.g., KB978207). If a Root Certificates update is listed in the Optional
    Software updates category on the left-hand side of the scan results window,
    install it to take full advantage of IE's enhanced security.

    5. Reboot & make sure everything in #1 above is enabled again and that the
    Windows Fireall is now disabled.
