  2. no it didn't happened with me,
    but you can try this solution
    Press F8 while booting windows
    choose safemode with command prompt
    when you see CMD window hits CRTL+SHIFT+DEL
    Task manager will open, click new task & type "explorer" (without comma's)
    you will see your desktop
    then go to c:windowsie7spuninst & run spuninst.exe to remove internet explorer 7
    if you have internet explorer 8, remove it same way by going c:windowsie8spuninst
    Then restart
    and install this hotfix: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/946501
    and then install internet explorer 8 again.
