Hi people. I'm using genuine version of Windows XP Pro and for the past month or so I've been using IE7 Beta 2 Preview (can't remember the specific build number). It's been working great until this moment...

Today when I browsed the software news I came across the download link to the supposedly Microsoft IE7 Beta 2 Preview build 5335.5. I downloaded it, though to my surprise it's exactly the same size as the first one and creation dates for both Microsoft IE7 Beta 2 Preview seem to be the same (Date Created: 1/25/2006).

I uninstalled the previous beta 2 preview as instructed, rebooted, then went ahead with the installation. Then when it came to 40% something it made a noise, a popup appeared (as attached) then after I pressed OK though the process boost up to 100% but the result is a unsuccessful installation (as attached).

More ridiculously, I can't get the previous build (which I installed with no problem at all whatsoever and been using this long) to install correctly either so I'm stuck with IE6 again now after all this time of tabbed browsing and enhanced security.

Could someone have a look at the pix and help plz?
Thank you very much

And I've just done a quick look around on the net.

Done the "giving Full Control" to administrator thing under .tif and .tiff in registry;

also I've tried copying the error loaded "msfeeds.dll" file from the temp extracted folder from the IE7 installation file into system32 folder.

but no luck! still get the same error message at the same stage. someone plz help :tazz:

Update again (cos I'm desperate :|)
After seeing some advice online instructing to install IE7 beta in the environment of av-free, au-free I tried to install it in Safe Mode (bugger that I never needed to do that the first time I put it on, I'm hating myself right now cos it's been running fine why would I bother with the new build with a zillion percent difference) but no luck, same msg popped up again with the error loading msfeeds.dll warning, it's flaming in System32 and I'm the administor I don't get it why I can't put IE7 on, again. Cheers

The refresh version is aimed at developers because it includes the final format for IE7

Run disc clean up, try again, if no change, run through this and then try

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then also from system tools, run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm then reboot.

Download, install and run
Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
