Rebuilt PC with Intel DX58SO mother board with Core i7 920 and installed OEM Vista 64. Everything appears ok except I receive the HTTP 400 Bad Request on all targeting urls.
I have a Belkin wireless network with a laptop that had WPA on it which I dropped with no change in results. I can see and copy files to an from both computers and access email on the Vista desktop. All of the MS Windows updates downloaded and installed in the background except for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x64. Have tried to install this numerous times with no success. I suspect that this might have something to do with the IE 7 errors. I get the same error trying to access my router at 192.168.2.1 and all attempts to diagnose the problem returns the info that I am connected to the internet . My Vista install is a basic install, i.e. I have installed no applications on the system.
