Sorry to hear of the problems you have been having with IE7.
I have taken a look at the extensive work you have done with LDTate over in the malware removal forum and there's not too much left that we can do!
However I do have 4 suggestions for your consideration:
1 Click on Start
Type in the white box
(Note the space is essential)
The scan should take around 20 minutes and will check all Windows protected System files and replace any that are damaged or missing, if any files that need replacing cannot be found from within your system, Windows SFC may ask for your Windows Xp SP2 installation disc to be inserted and then will copy them over. No output file will be produced although you can check on any files replaced by opening event viewer if you wish
2 With IE7 open, but with no other windows open, click on:
ensure that the tick/checkmark box to the left of "Disable script debugging for Internet Explorer" is filled
ensure that the tick/checkmark box to the left of " Disable script debugging for Other" is filled.
ensure that the tick/checkmark box to the left of "Display a notification about every script error" is cleared
Under Java Sun
ensure that the tick/checkmark box to the left of "Use JRE 1.6.0 for applet is filled.
Close Internet Explorer .
Reopen Internet Explorer and see how you go.
If you find that the settings are already as suggested then it's sometimes beneficial to alter them away, apply the changes,Ok your way out ,close the browser (a reboot even) and then set them back as suggested above.
3 If still no joy then you can try the other settings in the above "Advanced" panel including the Reset option.
4 If still no joy then it would be worth downloading Mozilla Firefox and installing this and see if the problem persists when using that browser:
Let us know how you get on.
