Three different problems have been reported: the browser could crash right after starting up; links may come up blank; or multiple windows may open when the browser is initiated, according to the posting.
Jeremy Dallman, project manager for Internet Explorer security, wrote: "After investigating several of these reports, we have traced these issues to a common source." The culprit is IE 7, the next version of Microsoft's web browser, which is in beta testing. The problems occur only if IE 7 is installed on a machine alongside IE 6. That double-IE configuration is not supported by the fix, according to Dallman's note.
