Advanced IE7-IE8 x64 Addon

After creating my XPpro x64 Install DVD with all the updates and some
other Addons, such as IE8, I could not copy files anymore without giving
myself everytime permission. This is very annoying when you copy much.
There was no working patch and I could not go back to IE7 because IE8
was directly streamed over the native IE from the original InstallationCD.

The solution was either making a new install-DVD with IE7 and missing
the possible advantages of IE8*, or creating a new IE7-IE8 x64 Addon.
I choose the last, and the result was a simple combination of both IE's
in one file, installing right after another. I tested the combi-IE addon and
found that this was just what I wanted.

Now I could copy in Intranet without extra mouseclicks and it came out
that reverting back to IE7 is eventually possible, if you should want it.

Try it yourself,

* P.S.
Yes, I know that if installing IE8 over IE7, later on HD, after completing
the Setup, i got the same result, but the joy is just having as much as
possible ready after installing with a prepaired Unattended Boot-DVD.

EasyCopy works in IE7-IE8 (not in IE8 sec) with this in Tweaks.reg:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1]
"DisplayName"="Lokaal intranet"
"Description"="This Zone... (etc)."
"PMDisplayName"="Local intranet [Protected Mode]"
