I visited after reading your thread, I typed in the address bar and was directed to I am using IE7 beta 2 as far a s I know this is the latest version of IE available. No virus attempted to attach itself to my PC. I am running that latest Norton Antivirus definitions and I am also totally patched up. I recommend you start your computer in safe mode then run your anti virus scanner in safe-mode as well as spyware and adware scanner. You could download the fix on an other mission and apply the fix to your machine. An other thing to do would be too uninstall IE, then download the latest version from M$ with firefox.
