Internet Explorer 7 Troubleshooting

Reader Question:
“Hi Wally, I am having problems with Internet Explorer 7 and wondering how to fix it?”    - Julie G., United Kingdom

Before addressing any computer issue, I always recommend scanning and repairing any underlying problems affecting your PC health and performance:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (WinThruster for Win 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and 2000 – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.

Setting up weekly (or daily) automatic scans will help prevent system problems and keep your PC running fast and trouble-free.

When your Internet Explorer 7 crashes or you have other issues, you may be stymied as to the causes of it. There are many causes to problems with Internet Explorer 7, but by narrowing down the causes, you can better fix them or repair them.

What are some of the main causes of Internet Explorer 7 issues?

These can include a need for an update, a missing file, or outdated updates that can cause issues that can affect your ability to use the program.

In addition, you may simply notice that at times you have issues with opening the program, loading websites, or opening your email. Even if the issues are sporadic, it is something to be considered, as the problem can worsen causing you to not be able to use the Internet Explorer 7 program at all.

I always recommend to my readers to regularly use a trusted registry cleaner and optimizer such as WinThruster or CCleaner. Many problems that you encounter can be attributed to a corrupt and bloated registry.
