Yesterday, I tried installing Internet Explorer 7 standalone on Windows 7. I didn't get any installation problems though I started facing weird errors.

When I open Windows Explorer an error appeared in the title bar:

The interface is unknown with "explorer.exe"

I tried re-registering a number of DLLs such as actxprxy.dll, shdocvw.dll and so on as listed here.

I can now open Windows Explorer but I am unable to copy/paste and many other operations no longer work.

What should I do? How can I fix this?

IE7 is not present on Windows 7. The OS shipped with IE8 native.

However, you can enable IE7 developer mode in Windows 7, although I should think running XP Mode would work better as you could then test IE6 and IE7.
