    Default Internet Exploror 7... safe?

    A few minute ago, I installed IE7, but when I restarted my comp Svchost.exe started to lag a good amount of my comp.
    Next the desktop appperance kept going back and fouth from classic then finally back to XP settings
    Then my sound started to go awol, and when i closed programs in task manager it start to make a beep sound, and it did the same in AIM, which ment something was up with the sound

    I'd like to know if a got a bad install or IE7 shouldnt be trusted until further notice...

    Thanks

    \WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe is a critical windows process - it runs most of Windows' services. Installing IE7 might cause that, but I guess it's pretty unlikely. Check your running services, maybe some things are holding up your startup.

    Do a virus and malware scan, these might get in when you were installing IE7 (assuming you're connected to the internet). IE7 by itself is not bad(assuming you downloaded it straight from M$' website) (although I prefer Opera9 personally - and I'm still using IE6. Too lazy to upgrade to 7 =p). If you can't stand it, do a system restore. Even after that, run another virus scan.

    Make sure your system is fully patched via window's update as well.

    I downloaded IE 7 last sunday and have had no problems. Probably something else acting up or malware.
