There's another thread about that specific problem, you could try what's suggested there: http://www.sevenforums.com/browsers-...displayed.html

Apparently it required an IE reset and deleting some add-ons in that case.

hey I found something else that wanted me to run some commands in the cmd prompt, and apparently my os was missing some files, so i just reinstalled windows, which solved the problem. Windows must not have installed properly the first time. I am going to mark this file as solved, and thanks so much for your help it was much appreciated!

Missing files, that was surprising. But nice to hear you solved it

"just reinstalled windows" that's a big task for many others

well technically I upgraded windows 7 to windows 7, in that managing to keep all my files and settings intact. It was some dlls that were not there, which pushed me to realize it was a windows problem. But thanks anyway!
