In add/remove programmes, no tabs/buttons show to allow me to uninstall IE7, there are for the updates but not for IE7 itself

Isn't this fun :)

a. Click Start, and then click Run.
b. In the Open box, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then click OK.
c. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.


I am now checking to see if there is anything special about SP3, as I am Vista only now

Good morning
Have uninstalled IE7 although there are still some updates associated with this in 'add/remove programmes' - should I also remove these?
I can see no sign of IE6 in the 'add/remove programmes' although I have obviously been able to connet through something to send this message.
Bad news though - the debugging message nis still coming up associated with this site - sdoesn't appear to ber associated with other web pages.

OK phase two of this cunning plan

Download IE8 from this site in the drop down box select your operating system

When it is installed on the toolbar (top right) will be an Emulate IE7 button select that and you will be asked to restart IE do that
If that button does not appear on your tool bar then there will be a tools drop down in the same place again select Emulate IE7

Let me know how that goes

Yes, that seems to be the case - have just tried another couple of sites and it doesn't happen there.

Well we have now exhausted all avenues, and as it is related to only this site and only on your system (as far as I know) This may well end up as a totally unresolved problem with no apparent cause. I am sorry that I could not resolve this last little niggly problem for you. But apart from that how is everything else

Hi, everything else seems to be working well.
Thank you very much for all the help and time you have given me in working through this - no way I could have done it!
Best wishes

OK then Alan .. I can't remember whether I have done this yet .. But..

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :)

Download and run this small programme and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself

Now to get you off to a good start we will clean your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your restore points, but this is my method:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
  • On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
  • Click NEXT
  • Enter a name e.g. Clean
  • Click CREATE
You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
  • In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
  • Click OK
  • The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
  • Select the More Options Tab.
  • At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
  • Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done


Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free program: It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

Keep safe :)
