Have you removed all AOL software listed in Installed Programs (e.g., AOL
Browser), not just the toolbar?
You cannot uninstall/reinstall IE7 in Vista.
Please post the complete (verbatim) error message you get when you attempt
to install IE8 Beta (not that I'd in any way recommend installing it to
correct the problem)?
Start | Run | (type) winver | OK => Post the complete second line of text
you see in the resulting window.
(My CrystalBall┬ę suspects you may have a beta build of Vista SP1 installed.)
