Reset Settings in Internet Explorer 7

Follow these steps to use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature from Internet Explorer 7:

   1. In Internet Explorer 7, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
   2. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
   3. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
   4. When Internet Explorer 7 finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK two times.
   5. Close Internet Explorer 7. The changes take effect the next time that you open Internet Explorer 7.

How is it now?
