Hey guys i just did an upgrade to me system i added a gigabyte p-35 mobo, a core 2 duo extreme 6800 and corsair xm2 memory 2 gigs worth, I also added a Zalman 9700 cooler. The system works great, I even got lucky and didn't have to reinstall windows xp pro, it just booted right up 1st boot with all my previous settings. The only problem is when i click the IE-7 icon i get a blank page and its get stuck on "connecting" after that i cant cancel the page with the "x" or control alt delete it . I went to Microsoft using Firefox, (my normal browser), and downloaded IE-7 all over again restarted my pc as it request and still i get the same thing. I need IE-7 for 1 thing-- windows updates, and i don't want to turn on windows automatic updater because i am a gamer and even though i have a core2... i don't want any bandwidth interruptions from the automatic updates, any help would be appreciated.
