It's horrible for dial up users.
I installed IE7 because - well you have to have the latest and best edition - don't you? Security etc etc. I have a dial up connection. The first time I tried to go on the net after installing I couldn't. The password entry box had gone. The pc kept dialling and kept being refused because my isp wanted the password. As a complete pc amateur and near illiterate I was sweating and very upset by the time frantic button pushing found the solution and got me back my password box.
Now I find that every time I go on the net even once I have established the connection and successfully read my e mail I cannot get into my isp homepage or onto hotmail or any other site without clicking on a "connect" box. The trouble is the box just won't come up sometimes, and I am left watching the wait sign until I give up and reboot. I hate ie 7 and wish I could get rid of it. I tried as soon as I had installed it and found the problems, but it refused to allow me to remove it. Or should I say it was still there after I tried to do a system restore.
The other thing is that my screen quality is now rubbish. Instead of being crisp and black it's grey and fuzzy when I'm on the net and I'm peering at the screen from a foot away and getting eyestrain, and nowhere can I find the option to review and amend this after the intial download gave the option at which time clearly I made the wrong choice. I am very fed up, have sore eyes and sorely tried patience. I feel us poor people who can't afford broadband are being made second class citizens here.
