Internet Explorer 7 error when closing IE7

Hi
Have upgraded from IE6 to IE7 but get the following error when closing it down:

ie7 installation access violation 01fb0200 iesdsg.dll

Anyone have similar problems?
Thanks

Re: Internet Explorer 7 error when closing IE7

I vaguely recall that this file is something to do with Spyware Doctor.
If you have this application installed, it may be worthwhile uninstalling and reinstalling it as it is probably configured in some sort of "IE6 mode" which isn't compatible with IE7

I don't have spyware doctor on this but spyware blaster yes. I did upgrade a PC with both of these no bother though so thought this would be straightforward  Undecided
