I installed the newest version of IE about 6 months ago, and all it has done is slow my computer adn cause problems with cetain sites I want to view. How do I revert back to my previous version of explorer without causing any issues. Or do you think it is smarter to go with Firefox?? I don't know much about it but have heard mostly positives.. thanks

Personally, I recommend Firefox. It is the only CSS2 compliant browser available to date. Has lots of very useful extensions and plug-ins. In fact, for those IE only sites, there is an IE Tab extension for Firefox. If you don't like extensions, but need a browser for those IE sites, then download and use Maxthon. Opera is nice too. Lots of neat widgets and pretty fast.

To revert back to Internet Explorer 6.0 go to Control Panel > add/remove programs. Look for Windows Internet Explorer 7, highlight and click remove. If asked to, reboot the computer afterwards and your computer should revert back to Internet Explorer 6.

I am with Major Payne about Firefox though Posted Image
