IE7 multiple user error

I cross-posted this in: microsoft.public.internet.explorer.ieak
========================================

Installed IE7. Was logged on (administrator) and had IE open. My son wanted
to check his email so I switched users and went to his Windows account.
Attempted to open IE and got the following:

C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe

Logged out from his account and opened another account (also with
administrator priveledges) and tried to open IE with the same error. I then
tried to open Control Panel and got:

C++ Runtime LIbrary Runtime Error:
C:\Windows\Explorer.exe

I uninstalled IE7 and tried the same process with IE6 but had the same
errors. I then restarted Windows in Safe Mode (with networking) and had no
problem.

What the heck did the IE7 install break and how do I fix it?!?!?

I'll try here - but I'm not the guru you want me to be...

Try unloading add-ons from IE7 and seeing if that makes a difference. Open
IE, click on tools, options, and disable them... You can right click on the
IE icon on the desktop and disable them too from the properties > options
selection.

If no good then:
