You could install firefox. Or disable content advisor in internet tools in ie. It may have been activated by a Windows update.

Well, you take me back to the issue at hand.  When you go to content advisor to disable the feature - it asks you for the supervisor password.  We do not know the supervisor password.  We have the Domain Admin password - all the domain passwords.  But do not know the password for "Content Advisor".  That is the problem.  This is an office with 37 wrkstns - office manager wants IE7 ....

There are instructions for removing the supervisor password from the registry here.
Hope it helps
