[Crosspost to IE General newsgroup] Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2) when posting in a forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply. Did the recently-installed updates include WinXP SP3? When (approx. date) did your Norton subscription expire? What anti-virus application is installed now? Was your anti-virus application running in the background when you installed IE7 (and/or SP3)? -- IE-specific newsgroup: news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general ~Robear Dyer (PA Bear) MS MVP-IE, Mail, Security, Windows Client - since 2002 AndreaL wrote: > I just updated my XP with every update under the sun.
