    I don't use IE 7, so I guess I have nothing to worry about? o_O

    If the problem exists with all versions of Windows XP, then why was mention made of IE 7? Not everyone with XP uses IE 7. Or is MS still in the delusional state of "integrating" the browser with the OS again? :rolleyes:

    IE6 discards the malformed commands, IE7 has a bug and pass bad commands to Shell32.dll, but this DLL is equally flawed no matter the version of your browser.
