Unable to load IE7 after Uninstall of IE8b2
My system is XP SP2, fully updated using auto update, fire wall is Windows /
Sygate Personal, AVG-8(free) and Windows Defender (both updated), thought I
would get that out of the way up-front.
Installed IE8 b1 in June and it worked fine. When b2 came out in
August I installed it also, that's when things went nuts, I uninstalled
IE8b2 and reinstalled IE8b1 as it was the last configuration that worked
(after install and reboot, before populating the desktop) error box said
Windows cannot find
C:\DOCUME~1\Raybaby\Locals~1\Temp\IE8- windowsxp-86 ENV.exe
Make sure you typed the name corectly?, and try again. To search for a file,
click start button and then click search.
Tried all suggested options to no avail, so uninstalled IE8b1 and downloaded
IE7. Got RUNDLL error message "the OS cannot run %1 error loading
So I did a system repair with my XP disk which reinstalled IE6 SP2 and
things have been working fine until last week, when I got a MS auto update
for IE7, so I did (wishful thinking I guess).
Upon reboot my desktop came up looking funny (all icons on the right side
and the start menu was ocupping the entire left side with no color) an error
MASCui.exe - ordinal not found
The ordinal 13 could not be located in the dynamic link library ietutil.dll
And as the desktop began to populate with "auto run" programs, I got the
same message fo each one (ordinal 13 could not be found for xxxxxxx.xxx).
So I am back to using IE6 SP2, is there anything I can do besides a disk
wipe and full install then go from there? Any advice, links or help you
could give would be greatly appreicated.
p.s. please ignore any typos, two college degrees and I still can't spell,
