No: not until your ISP does something silly like not allowing you to login unless you have IE7. My ISP did that so I was forced to from 5 to 6 but I've discovered firefox since then so I don't use IE anymore.

I have no problems with IE7 on all PCs I serviced.

Comcast, Verizon, Optimum Online, and all other ISPs that I know of don't have a mandate to force users to upgrade to IE7.

I have seen a number of threads here that indicate at least some folks ARE having issues with IE7. MS Update seems to be pushing it.

I have seen those postings too but I have yet to experience firsthand a machine that actually have IE7 problems.

I've seen many machines that have trouble once IE 7 is installed. One in particular wouldn't update Symantec, no matter what I tried. Reinstalling Engine, Live Update, nothing. I uninstalled IE 7, and PRESTO! Symantec works and updates properly.

I don't plan on upgrading. I prefer Firefox anyway.

Life's more painless for the brainless.

Hi tuley,

I don't have near the expertise or experience that Jennifer and XpUser have when discussing computers but I can tell you I have been using IE7 since it came out of the 'beta' stage and I have experienced no major problems.

Plus, if you do experience any problems or IE7 is not what you want you can always revert back to IE6 .

You might want to check out this link and see for yourself what it has to offer compared to IE6.

Go here and read up on it: IE 7 Information

Good luck!

Regards,

Phil

Morning Ltoland,

Check out this link:

M/S IE7 Support Link

If still no success using IE7 ... just revert back to IE6.

I, for one, am a big fan of IE7.
At work we have IE6 and I am getting so tired of it.

There were some issues with IE7's Phishing Filter taking too long to scan a site name against their list but MS fixed it.

I will admit that launching IE7 takes an extra second over IE6 (4 seconds instead of 3) but once launched I do believe it is faster than IE6.

I particularly like being able to open a link in a new tab with a single click of the mouse wheel.

I find it slightly annoying that IE7 will 'advise' me that it is not recommended to go to secured sites with an unsigned certificate but I just click Continue anyway when it is a site I knowingly want to go to.

IE6 is no longer supported by MS.

I have had no problems with IE7 since they first pushed it out to us.

Morning Bryco,

Long time .. no see.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

Thanks to you and others on this site sharing your expertise and excellent advice with me many 'moons' ago when I first entered the computer world I am now 'putting' along fairly well.

I too, even with my limited knowledge, am a big fan of IE7.

I am glad to see you still are giving out excellent advice and opinions on this site.

Have a great week!

Thanks and regards,

Phil

I have used IE7 for XP-Pro x64 since it came out and have had no problems with it. In fact I like it so much more than I do any previous verison of IE. If IE7 had problems I would do everything I could to try to fix them before I would go back to IE6. I like IE7 so much if it had problems that I couldn't fix, I would even consider getting some professional help to fix it.

IE7 beta has problems, and I had to uninstall. The final version is fine so far - have been using for at least a few months now. Symantec anti virus continues to update without any problems.
