Hi,

Here is the one problem I was never ever able to fix, except with reinstalling a clean windows. (maybe installing ie8 will finally solve this once it is released)


Ie7 is installed.

Trying to open internet options from the ie7 icon on the desktop or within the ie7 menu opens nothing. No error messages, simply nothing happens.

In control panel, the icon for internet options is there, but there is NO TEXT under it. Blank text with the icon. won't open either (no error).

Every policy setting in registry is okay.

The .CPL file is the right version. Tried copying from other computer, same thing.

I can change the .CPL file to open the ie6 internet options. But theses options are lackluster as opposed to ie7's

Removing/reinstalling ie7 causes same problem.

Uninstall to ie6 works, since the ie6 CPL file works when ie7 is installed.


My guess is ie8 will automatically fix this... but in the mean time, anyone has ever fixed this?

Thank you

Have you tried starting IE in safe mode to see if an addon is causing the issue?

Start - Run

Type "iexplore.exe –extoff" without qoutes

hit enter

does it open this way?

also try this .bat

or make it yourself with the following:

regsvr32 /u /s urlmon.dll
regsvr32 /u /s mshtml.dll
regsvr32 /u /s shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 /u /s browseui.dll
regsvr32 /u /s jscript.dll
regsvr32 /u /s vbscript.dll
regsvr32 /u /s scrrun.dll
regsvr32 /u /s msxml.dll
regsvr32 /u /s actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 /u /s softpub.dll
regsvr32 /u /s wintrust.dll
regsvr32 /u /s dssenh.dll
regsvr32 /u /s rsaenh.dll
regsvr32 /u /s gpkcsp.dll
regsvr32 /u /s sccbase.dll
regsvr32 /u /s slbcsp.dll
regsvr32 /u /s cryptdlg.dll
regsvr32 /u /s oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 /u /s ole32.dll
regsvr32 /u /s shell32.dll
regsvr32 /u /s initpki.dll
regsvr32 /u /s msjava.dll

Yep, tried both techniques.

I've seen this only 2 or 3 times since the release of ie7. Saw it again last week, which is why I asked.

T'is the only problem that got the best of me in 12 years of doing this! My ego would love a fix :)

Whenever I have issue with IE 7 itself I do a search on IE.INF and right click, INSTALL. Usually that solves the issue.

Running install on the ie.inf "virginizes" Internet Explorer back to how it was first installed with original settings.. if at least in the registry. It's worked for me numerous times.

Nice tip - Thanks!

Is this different than the reset from within IE7?

Many times the defaults can be corrupted within any version IE, so hitting reset will return them to a default that might of been set by malware or some other form of interloper. Using Majestic's technique would be the same as putting a computer back to factory settings.
