    Some users of Internet Explorer 7's beta are reporting problems accessing the crucial Windows Update and Microsoft Update sites, but Microsoft denied any system-wide glitch.

    "Tried going to Windows Update or Microsoft Update w/ IE7 beta yet?" wrote Evan Burroughs, an IE 7 user, to TechWeb in a Thursday e-mail. "It crashes the browser. How does a beta user fix or update the browser when it crashes at the site it uses to update and fix flaws?"

    Burroughs' experience is not the only complaint about Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview; numerous messages on Microsoft's official IE 7 newsgroup, as well as the one dedicated to Windows Update issues, strike the same tone.

    Not only does it run, i just installed some critical fixes posted recently.

    this just seems to me like another bad attempt to find something wrong with microsoft's products

    No problems with it crashing here. I did the updates almost as soon as they were released, and all went well.I wasn't too sure about the TABS to start with, but I'm beginning to like them now. I guess it was just a matter of getting used to it.
