There is a problem when i updated the new version.

I installed unswervingly but your modification double listed in the Installed Product and I don't accessing the settings of Cyb - Sub-Forum Manager in vbulletin options.

I think this is a bug from vbulletin's this version

Internet Explorer 7.05 scrunches columns to left of page. Firefox and Opera span evenly across page.

You can see what I mean at my site here.

Four columns.

Firefox and Opera display the four columns evenly across page. IE7 scrunches the four columns to the left side of page. View the link using the three browsers and you'll see the "Online Puzzle Games" forum is scrunched in IE7 but the other two browsers display four columns evenly.

Solution found. :)
I had one sub-forum set to display only under certain circumstances. Changed Online Puzzle Games forum to match the other sub-forum settings and all sub-forums open to public viewing.

However,:( IE7 still scrunches sub-forum listings in private areas when a member with permissions for that private area logs in.

IE7 aligns properly if all sub-forums open to public, as the Online Puzzle Games shows, but scrunches listings to the left for private areas.

When "Show Private Forum" for main forum set to "Yes- hide post counts" and all sub-forums set to "No" for "Show Private Forum" then IE7 scrunches sub-forums to the left side of page. To open private areas to public viewing by setting all sub-forums to "Yes - hide post counts" sort of defeats the idea of private areas. Setting main forum and all sub-forums to "No" or "Yes- hide post counts" doesn't solve IE7 problem for members when they have logged in.

For the time being I've posted a notice of IE problem on site and suggest members use Firefox or Opera.

Fixed. Uninstalled then reinstalled mod.
