Post Help with IE 7
I've just installed internet explorer 7 but i hate it!

I think version 6 is far better, not mantioning that certain software i use doesn't work with version 7 :x

I've been on microsoft website and tried downloading version 6 but it wont let me because i have the newer one on my system, but i don't want to uninstall version 7 casue i don't know what'll happen, will i still be able to get on the net for the download of ie6?

Can anyone advise me of the best thing to do :)

Just a bit of advice, leave well alone, do not uninstall IE7, the PC could blow up. You will end up with problems.

Do as the guys say and download Firefox, then copy yor favs.
Just use FF, IE will look after you updates.

As I have said in past posts, I use all four on mine

IE7, I do not like it,
Firefox
Opra , this is a good one
Netscape

yeh it should just be a case of uninstalling ie7 then reinstalling ie6. surely it wont do nowt to comp its just a browser. i dont even use ie nor know wot number i have. but i know uninstalling cant do tht much. why would it cause so much conflict when unistalling?

Dan, you’re forgetting one very important fact. 'MICROSOFT' IE ? is a very important part of Windows, you can uninstall but IE will leave something of itself behind, then when you go to install an earlier version strange things THINGS can happen to Windows.
The best thing to do is don't, leave well alone, if all is working OK that is.

I was using IE6, then upgraded to IE7, I was not happy, so Uninstalled IE7, went to reinstall IE6 and was told I still had IE7 on my system. Being me, I hacked the reg. and got rid of all IE scripts then reinstall IE6, and then found that I had no internet short cuts, non worked. So I reinstall IE7, all started working again. My default browser is FF IE7 is just there for updates and the need to down load from the MS site.

One thing I can say about IE7 is it gives more function on certain sites, EBAY being one of them..
Just be carefull, messing around can cause you more problems than it's worth.

MERRY Christmas Guys.

Problem solved :D

I installed mozilla (cheers sicufc for the link)

Then i just went into my control panel and uninstalled ie7, very risky but i need the software to work, so i had to risk it!

My pc shut down and restarted, ie7 had gone and IE6 is back :)

I still have the flashing shield telling me to update but i can live with that!

I've also just been using firefox which i reckon i could get used to :)


Thanks for all your help guys!!

I downloaded FireFox only a few weeks ago and now it's the browser i use 99% of the time. Some sites don't support FireFox but it'll only be a matter of time.
