Can't get Internet Explorer7 (ie7) to work after I unistalled Internet Explorer8 (ie8).
I can't get Internet Explorer7 (ie7) to work after I unistalled Internet Explorer8 (ie8).
I followed the Microsoft ie8 uninstall intructions exactly but now I have the following errors:
ie7 fails to load - it flashes on the screen for less than a second but doesn't appear
I cannot access Internet Options from the Control Panel icon.
The icon is present but the icon text is missing.
It just does not open.
Therefore, I cannot try to Reset ie7 using the Advanced tab in Options/Properties
inetcpl.cpl entered into "run" does not open Internet Options either
The is no option to unistall ie7 from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.
ie7 is listed with all its updates.
5 I have located the unistall ie7 option elsewhere on my system and this appears to work but, it warns if ie7 is unistalled then all the (listed) programs installed after ie7 might not work.
There are over 40 Microsoft updates in the list including SP2 and SP3 and many other programmes/applications.
6 I have tried to re-install a new download of ie7 but that does not work either.
7 A new install of ie8 does have a working Internet Options/Properties icon and it does work
but it is so slow and hogs all my available CPU to 100% and slows the whole computer down too.
This is the reason I unistalled ie8 - ie7 used to fly like the wind
*The system is clean of any rogueware/spyware/virus
*inetcpl.cpl is listed in the registry
*I have run sfc /scannow and after reboot ie7 and Internet Options are still not working - everything else is working fine.
*I have tried a couple of Microsoft IE fixes from the Help and Support but none have worked
*I am running XP Home (pukka copy) 950Hrtz AMD Athlon cpu (I know..), plenty of available memory and disc space.
So, my queries/problems are:
if I go ahead with the unistall of ie7 from the other location on my machine will it mean I have to re-install over 40 Microsoft updates and the other items listed including SP2 and SP3?
Is there a fix to get Iinternet Options function back so I can try a twiddle with the ie7 Reset button?
How do I stop ie8 being listed as an download from Microsoft Updates?
I was hoping to uninstall ie7 then re-install a fresh copy and go back to where I was before ie8 uninstall crashed my working ie7?
I did not want to instal ie8 after reading how it is a big application that hogs resources and I didn't want it anyway as ie7 was working fine but, it appeared as an Essential Update from Microsoft and the option not to install it was NOT AVAILABLE (who came
up with that bad idea at Microsoft???).
So, there I was with a perfectly good working computer than after a Microsoft security update download and an unistall it got a busted system.
The Internet Options/Properties function appears to have been damaged or corrupted after the uninstall of ie8
Does anybody know how to fix my queries/problems please?
Anwsers to the Problem Can't get Internet Explorer7 (ie7) to work after I unistalled Internet Explorer8 (ie8).
Thanks for reply Joseph - din't realise this was Vista only but,
just wanted to let you know i have resolved part of the ie7/ie8 problem by doing an uninstall/reinstall of my modem and driver.
Internet Explorer 8 is now running just as well as my previous ie7 used to do - but - ie8 has given me back the huge increase in in my System Idle Hardware Interrupts from 0 - 43% and the s/idle Deferred Proceedure Calls from 0 to 39%.
Have not figured this
bit out yet or what/why is other than the problem does NOT occur in Safe Mode.
However, once again, I had no choice but accept an update from m/soft to install ie8 alongside other updates and then...
it still ran like a ton of bricks and whacked up my cpu to 100% from its usuall 4% system idle.
I can see from my records that I did the ie8 install/uninstall and System Resore SEVEN times over the last few weeks before I started this post string for help - and thanks guys that replied.
After doing 7 system restores I cleared tho log (Doh! Idiot!) and then found ie7 had gone wrong so I couldn't go back to it.
Tried many things other than Repair to try to fix ie7 - found where the errors are in Internet Explorer (missing files - that sfc /scannow
didn't pick-up) so I decided that going back is not the way of going forward and so I accpted the 8th ie8 update install download (Mmmmm, perhaps lucky 8?) and went on to see how to fix it running like ie8loatware - seem to have part sorted - now comes, I
guess, the more tricky but.
Many thanks for your time.
