I need IE help from people that don't learn their grammer by text messages

By DanaNicole76 ·
Ok I made a stupid mistake and I admit it. Now I need help bringing some sense of normalcy back into my life.
I went and installed IE8 BETA2 and I want my IE 7 back. I tried install the 7 and it said it cannot continue becaue a newer version was installed. SO I unwittingly uninstalled all older versions hoping to confuse the program less. But, alas, it gives me the same error.
I ahve searched Microsoft and graciously they provided me a way to "INSTALL THE LATEST VERSION" aka IE8 Beta2...So I am back at square one.
ANY help is good help especially from the smarted ITs' on the NET!
Thanks for your time :)

Re-install IE8, Then use

by IC-IT In reply to I need IE help from peopl ...

(if XP) the add/remove programs to uninstall IE8. (If Vista) Go to Control Panel, click on the uninstall programs icon, select - View installed updates link. Locate and select Windows Internet Explorer 8 in the list of installed updates, and then click on Uninstall button. Click on Yes when asked that are you sure want to uninstall the update.
Depending on how far back you removed the other(s) IE, you should now have IE 6 or 7.

Did two restores actually

I just went through two system restores and I WAS able to get IE7 but now every time I close it I get that stupid message that says Internet Explorer has encountered an error and needs to close.
Am I fighting a losing battle? I use Firefox as well and I love it but I really like have Internet Explorer 7 for when I come across things that Firefox can't do.

Use the IE Tab add-on for Firefox, then when you 'need' Internet Explorer, Firefox will supply it for you.

Check

by Jacky Howe In reply to Did two restores actually

windows updates and see if there is any for IE7.<br>
Run Internet Explorer in "No Add-ons" mode. Here's how to do it.
<br>
Go to Start, All Programs and System Tools<br>
Click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)<br>
Restart Internet Explorer. If it runs smoothly, then it can be determined that one of the add-ons was causing the problem. You will need to continue troubleshooting this issue until you find out which add on was causing the problem.
<br><br>
Start Internet Explorer 7 <br>
Go to Tools, Programs, Manage Add-ons button<br>
Under the option "Add-ons that have been used by Internet Explorer", you will see a list of all of the add-ons installed on your system. <br>
Click the name of an enabled add-on and then click Disable under the Settings option. <br>
Note: You may want to speed this process by disabling 3 or more add-ons at a time.<br>
<br>
1. Start Internet Explorer. <br>
2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.<br>
3. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Disable Script Debugging check box in the Browsing section.<br>
4. Click OK, and then restart Windows. <br>

The old trial and error method

by DanaNicole76 In reply to Check

Thanks for the step by step. It makes it a lot easier on me. There was a time I just LOVED doing all the trial and errors on my computers completely void of help. Great learning experience but OH SO VERY TIME CONSUMING! So yes even though I still have to do the add on disabling, you still saved me a lot of time with all your helpful info!
So I truly thank you!
(I am going to have to do the add on testing later today, I will let you know of the results)
