SysFader: iexplore.exe - Application Error in IE 7

When the user goes into her personal rogers email account or into work email she is getting the sysfader error. I have tried the following without success,

In display properties->Appearance->Effects
I unchecked "Use the following transition effect for menus and tooltips"
This did not resolve

In System properties->Advanced->Selected Custom and unchecked the 1st four boxes, this did not work.

Tools->Internet Options->Advanced->Under Browsing I unchecked "Enable page Transitions" this did not work.

Is there a fix outside of reinstalling IE 7 or upgrading the user to IE 8?

You probably need to upgrade the user to IE8.

You used to be able to remove IE7 to get back to IE6 and then re-install IE7, but that trick has disappeared.

So at this point (XP now nearly dead), you should see if you can upgrade to IE8 and hope it works.

Rogers Mail is based on Yahoo! Mail and it works on our computers but we are using IE9 on both.

I saw that very soon Google will only support IE9 and up (IE10 due out next month).

So another possibility here is to try Mozilla Firefox and see if it works. XP may soon need a non-IE browser to keep it running.
