IE7 and GMail conflict

I have just changed my laptop from Windows Media Center to Windows XP Pro, SP2.
Under Windows Media Center, I was using Internet Explorer 6.
I did not wipe my hard drive. I just installed a full version of Windows XP Pro, and the Windows Media Center OS was deleted in that process.
After changing the OS, I did not try to use GMail under IE6.
I upgraded to IE7 without problems.
Now, with trying to access my GMail account in IE7, sometimes GMail hangs when I try to change pages. This is an intermittent phenomenon.
Any ideas? This is driving me crazy.
Note: This does not happen when I access GMail using Firefox.
Note: I have not tried reverting to IE6.

Hello joco22,

Gmail should run with IE7.  Click on Older Version link at top of Gmail Inbox page. If that fixes the problem, disable McAfee Site Advisor, as it interferes with Gmail in IE7.  Then click on Newer Version.

Hope this helps!

joco22--IE7 and Gmail work without conflict on my PC.
Maybe your installation of IE7 is corrupt.  It might be worth the bother to uninstall IE7  (Control Panel|Add/Remove|look under Windows Internet Explorer).
Once IE7 is uninstalled, try Gmail.  OK?
Now reinstall IE7 using the procedure here

P.S.  Installing one version of Windows on top of another can cause problems, but let's not worry about that yet.
