HI All,
I am having terrible problems with IE7, I can't get it to accept any url in the url locator window. I want to delete it from my PC, but can't find it in my Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs. Can anyone offer any advice.... I might go back to IE6... although I generally use FF, considering Opera.

Cheers
Andy

Uninstall IE7 by running "Spuinst.exe" from the C:\WINDOWS\ie7\spuninst folder.

The IE7 folder in the Windows folder is hidden by default.

Go to Start -> Run and type in "C:\windows\ie7\spuinst\spuninst.exe" and do it that way.

When you go to the add/remove programs make sure show updates box is checked at the top. Let us know if this helps

Updates was active, still unable to see the IE7 anywhere. If I reinstall IE6 will this override the IE7 and allow me to use IE again? At the moment links in my emails don't work either....aaarrrggghhhhh

Cheers
