ok

so who sends the updates for firefox

or when you purchase a computer is it all firefox installments no microsoft at all

this computers history

this computer is a refurbished one and it has new harddrive
but the harddrive was reformatted for a mistake on my part
the computer name was suppose to show as my wifes name
she wanted it to show as her the owner no big deal for me
this was after windows xp pro sp2 was installed so i figured it should be to much to change
consulted with the tech who installed windows

he said to change name in user account but that was not what we wanted
so i consulted here at geeks and was told to go to my computer andright click then manage and change name there under my folder after a restart well you could say i busted windows
and i got it reformatted
so i never had a virus
trend is the virus program
spy bot search and destroy is the spyware program

the reason to have a good clean install of ie7 is because i have another computer
its brand new s752n hp pavillion slim line
and want to have all the updates including ie7

its never been used or updated so trying deal with any issues before i update that one

got to go, be back in a couple of hours:

go to C:\WINDOWS\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe

P.S. ie7 is a hidden folder, you've got to check "show hidden files and folders" in folder options

i use the command prompt and entered this C:\WINDOWS\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe but it came back as invalid batch file

then i entered this in the command prompt ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe and it came back as the system could not find the path specified

guess the uninstaller is missing

no, its there but somethings wrong for it came up as invalid batch file.

Do you have winrar? if so then extract the files from your installation file, then copy spuninst.exe to your C:\WINDOWS\ie7\spuninst\ folder, dont use a command prompt just do it yourself and rename the old spuninst (if any) to spuninst.exe.old then try running it, NOT from a command prompt, just click on the file.

If that does not work then run iesetup.exe from the update folder of the extracted files, tell me if that works.
