Reinstalling Internet Explorer
I'm trying to uninstall and reinstall IE7 using the Vista SP1 operating
system. I'm running into roadblocks everywhere as Vista does its "child
proofing." I can't download IE7 from the Microsoft website because it's
already installed. I can't uninstall it because it doesn't show up on the
Control Panel's uninstall software option. Can I reinstall it from the
installation disk? Anyone know of another way to do this?

Re: Reinstalling Internet Explorer
You cannot reinstall IE7 in Vista, period.

What problems are you having that you think reinstalling IE might resolve,
Rick?

Is this your thread, too? =>
