You didn't say which lower version of Plone you have. However, if its
earlier than 2.1, there are many reasons why you should upgrade soon
anyway. I just googled for ZFloatMenu and it looks old. I don't know
much about ZFloatMenu -maybe the functionality it provides is now core
in later version of Plone, because that would explain how it doesn't
seem to be used by many people anymore. Someone else might comment on this.
In general, when you upgrade Plone, you have to look at the product
page on plone.org for all 3rd-party products you have (unless they are
zope products in which case check zope.org against your new zope
version) and see what version they are tested against. Sometimes even if
it only says tested against version x it will still work on x+1 but you
have to look on the newsgroups to see who is using it.
It sounds to me like you need to migrate Plone to a later version and
that would solve a number of problems besides IE7. This may be
complicated if latest versions of ZFloatMEnu & CPanel don't work with
that, or you may be lucky. The best way to know is to try it out. In the
worst case scenario you might have to change some things so as not to
depend on those particular 3rd-party products.
This newsgroup , plone setup, is connected with installing and
upgrading Plone. Don't forget also plone-users, which has more traffic
for answers to some other specific questions you might have.
