I just installed Internet Explorer 7 on my Acer Aspire Laptop 1670, rebooted, now I’m getting the error message “The file or directory c:\$Secure is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.” the problem kept getting worse and worse and I was seriously thinking re-installing from an ghost image of I took of the laptop a few months ago.
Then I though, unistall Internet Explorer 7 and voila, no more error message and my laptop is now working fine. I thought that IE 7 was supposed to be out of Beta now pfffff, I think I’ll wait a few months until they get round to ironing out the bugs before I’ll install IE 7 again! and the lesson I learn’t today was, if it’s not broke don’t fix it.
Googled the problem and found a few links associated with this problem.
