    I have, for the second time, installed IE7 and, for the second time, it has an annoying practice of opening (unbidden) when ever I click on My Computer, My Documents or several other Windows XP icons - one result being that I have to close IE as well as the the other item that I have opened. And this is saying nothing about the possible security problem always inherent in the use of any iteration of IE. I only have the lousy thing because some sites will open only with IE. Is there any simple solution for this problem? Of course, I can always just uninstall it and revert to IE6. I have tried using Windows own Unhelp site, to no avail.
