    I sure hope this is something silly and easy 'cause I'm feeling pretty silly that I can't figure it out: When I go to Tools, Internet Options, the Options window flashes and then disappears, never to be found. I can do it all day and it flashes and disappears. I can open Control Panel and do it from there and it flashes and disappears.

    I'm running IE7 because 8 blew up my computer. Actually, now that I think about it, IE8 did the same thing. I would click on it to open, it would flash like it was going to give me my homepage and then disappeared. I had to UNinstall it (which we all know going back with anything MS is hell on earth) and go back to IE7.

    I am using a Dell Laptop with AMD Processor and XP PRO 2002 with Service Pack 3.

    I need to reset some of my Options and I cannot see the window to do so.

    Thank you!

    Greg
