I have had cases where I have gone to a web site using IE7 and an anti-virus dialog box pops up and says "hey, a file on your computer is infected!"I'm just wondering, because IE7 runs in a "sandbox" and asks you before trying to do anything with a file in its cache, would a virus have compromised your system if the anti-virus program was not running?As in, just because a file in your cache is infected, does that necessarily mean it could have caused harm if not detected?This exclusively refers to IE7 being used in Vista.
