New Re: Wife's computer not behaving
Google's Logo is PNG. There are some known issues with PNGs and IE7. Perhaps something in the following article applies:


But yeah, update to at least IE8 if there's no will to switch to Chrome of Firefox. (IE9 may be too big a change UI wise. I know I didn't like some of their choices).
Read the article at the link you provided that said Quicktime may be the culprit. When I started up Quicktime it said a newer version was available, so I figured I'd install it, then try the suggestions in the article. Installed V7.7, rebooted, opened IE ... and the Google home page graphic was there.

"Chicago to my mind was the only place to be. ... I above all liked the city because it was filled with people all a-bustle, and the clatter of hooves and carriages, and with delivery wagons and drays and peddlers and the boom and clank of freight trains. And when those black clouds came sailing in from the west, pouring thunderstorms upon us so that you couldn't hear the cries or curses of humankind, I liked that best of all. Chicago could stand up to the worst God had to offer. I understood why it was built--a place for trade, of course, with railroads and ships and so on, but mostly to give all of us a magnitude of defiance that is not provided by one house on the plains. And the plains is where those storms come from."
