    First make sure your system meets the requirements.

    If it does then maybe you just need to clean it up a bit. Below is how I would do it.

    Run the 3 scans below.

    Update and run your Anti-Virus program. Don't have one? You can run a free online scan from CA.

    http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan....

    Download, update and run Spybot---http://www.safer-networking.org/ . Don't forget to use the Immunize feature.

    Download, update and run Adaware---http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/produc...

    Now lets clean up your registry.

    Download RegScrubXP--http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?d...

    Safely cleans junk out of the Windows 2000/XP system registry. All changes made to the registry are fully restorable to it's original condition. You can make an exclusion list of registry entries that RegScrubXP will not display as problems. You can sift through a list of file extensions, company names, run upon startup programs, Internet Explorer history, and uninstall programs to delete what you think is junk.

    Download CleanUp---http://www.stevengould.org/software/clea...

    Free disk space, make your computer run better/faster and protect your privacy - all in one easy solution. All for free!

    Now lets clean up your disk.

    Do a Disk Cleanup and Disk Defrag. You can find both of them by following the path below.

    Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Disk Cleanup. Let it do its thing. You can check every box that has something to delete.

    Now follow the same path and do a Disk Defrag. Again just let it do its thing.

    Now lets tweak your connection.

    There are many programs out there to do this. I will give you 2 of them.The first one is TCP Optimizer.

    Description: The TCP Optimizer is a free, easy Windows program that provides an intuitive interface for tuning and optimizing your Internet connection. There is no installation required, just download and run.

    http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php...

    You can get support for the best way to set it up right from their forum http://forums.speedguide.net/

    The second one is Cablenut.

    Windows XP tested and approved

    CableNut is a tool for optimizing your Internet Connection. We have provided a way to tweak any option you may want to in the adjuster. You can load "CableNut Custom Setting" files that are included with the program to tweak your Internet connection.

    http://www.cablenut.com/

    Again support is available right from their forum.http://www.broadbandnuts.com/index.php?p...

    All programs are FREE!

    After applying the suggestions above you will have a clean and faster computer. Enjoy.

    If you do not need to use Internet Explorer 6/Internet Explorer 7 you should try the Firefox browser. That message on your screen said that there was a problem installing IE7 and your computer needs to be restarted to undo changes to your system. If you want to keep using IE, stay with IE6: restart your system and it should rollback to IE6.

    I installed IE7 on my desktop, no problems. It is a 1.35 Ghz processor. I tried to install IE7 on my laptop (750 Mhz) and it was so unstable I went back to IE6.

    I think processor speed is the culprit. Hope that helped some.

    IMHO: IE7 is not worth the hassle. They changed everything around.
