I haven't had any problems at all with it or IE5.5 either, but I was looking at IE setup log last night, because many of the version numbers for its dlls didn't match what MS said they should be, and guess what, in the log it said, first line "starting setup IE 5.xxxxx JAP". I downloaded IE 5.5 and WM7 about the same time (before Christmas) both directly from MS Update Site. Also everything on my system is still in English (I wonder if I had had Japanese character support what would have happened?).
I had also read somewhere (some comment/post) that IE5.5, WM7 and DX8.0 all seemed to behave better if all three where installed together...does kind of make a little sense but I can't really say for sure but I did do all three....
So I wonder if when and what you get when you download it has something to do with how well it will behaves?
