Internet Explorer 7 stops working in Vista

TechBro
I am running Vista with IE 7 and have encountered a strange (and repeatable) problem.

Whenever, an application tries to launch Vista to open an HTML file, IE7 stops working. It has happened with programs that need to open help files as well as log files (like HotSync for my Palm).

Any ideas? Is this related to a Vista or IE7 security setting?

    I just upgraded to Vista, and when I tried using IE7, whenever I clicked on a link, the IE would freeze. I disabled all of my add-ons except for Flash, and this fixed my problem.

    It was the MCIE Plugin from Metamail. I'm not even sure what it does, since their website is so vague.

    Thanks for the pointer!
