    It's a Korean bank as I am a Korean. They use ... um, what's that called ... you know some applet or scpirt that only runs on IE. I need that to use real-time banking.

    Furthermore, many of entertainment sites in Korea are for IE only. Firefox won't even work at all. I don't know how good firefox is. I am not a programmar. So, I wouldn't know. But no matter how good it is code-wise, if it doesn't display webpages I must use, it's useless.

    Worst toolbar/menu layout I have ever seen.

    There are many specialized web apps that may have issues with IE7. So until they make sure they are compatible, they don't want all the employees to be automatically updated. Makes sense to me....

    Interestingly enough that M/S also provides a toolkit/patch to prevent IE7 from automatically being installed too. Stating something to the effect that many companies may not want IE7 to be automatically distributed to their environments.

    These will answer questions that all vB admins will probably get as more people get IE7. Especially the post formatting popup one, which I am convinced vB will need to get round somehow in a future version.

    Please feel free to use them in your own forums, no ackowledgement needed.

    Change *yourdomain.com to your own root domain.

    To get the following in bbcode format, press the QUOTE button and copy the bits you want from the text window.
    =========================================================

    Post Formatting Popups
    To make the little popup boxes for things like inserting URLs work, you need to add this site to your list of Trusted Sites:

    Tools > Internet Options > Security Tab
    Under Trusted Sites press the 'sites' button
    Add www.yourdomain.com to the trusted sites list.

    Next, you need to enable popups from this site.

    Tools > Popup Blocker > Popup Blocker Settings
    Add the following to the allowed list:
    *yourdomain.com

    The above should allow the post formatting boxes to work.

    The text is all funny!
    IE7 uses 'Clear Type' fonts by default, regardless of the fact that you may have this switched off in Windows.

    Some people like it, others hate it. If you hate it:

    Tools > Internet Options > Advanced
    Scroll down to 'Multimedia'
    Untick 'Always use clear type for HTML'
    Click OK

    Alternatively, if you DO like it, you can make everything in Windows use it. (This works even if you don't have IE7, it's a Windows XP setting).

    Right click a blank area of the desktop
    Select Properties
    Click the Appearance Tab
    Press the Effects Button
    Look for "Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts"
    Change to 'Clear Type"
    Click ok all the way back out.
    I love the clear type, and thanks to your tutorial I now have it all over win XP. I suppose it does help having a good monitor, for those who say the text is blurred.

    I've never had any issues with Microsoft products, IE7 is great and i'm a big MS fan anyway. I always do updates and keep everything in order. I find that other programs installed have caused any errors I have had in my many years of computing and what not.

    Nevermind on the unrar thing... I figured it out with WinRAR..

    I followed the steps by deleting those specific files/folder and also created the text file as mentioned... but when I double click on iexplore.exe, I am getting this error. Perhaps you can shed some light. Screenshot attached:

    Use this distribution, i have already made the necessary changes, works fine on my system..

    If you still get that error, its because it cannot connect to the default IE configuration site, it might be bogged down, you might need to try it again later today..

    Hey Joe,

    How do I unrar the .exe IE7 install file? Not sure what that means.

    Deleting the $windir$/SoftwareDistribution directory, then accessing Windows Update resolves this...
