Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

2 Answers

Can I run download ie 6 if ie7 is pre-installed on my computer?

My computer was installed with windows vista and internet explorer 7, which I have had no problems with, except that a dvd rw that I need for work will not play on ie7. Can/should I install ie6 and can they run on the same computer without any problems? I don't want to lose my ie7 but I need these dvd's.

    It is a dvd rw that is actually aerial photos of particular counties. there is no sound or anything but it says dvd on the cover. Also on the cover is the logo for IE7 for the new ones and nothing for the older ones. The counties that have been updated to IE 7 start running immediately without doing anything except selecting run instead of save on the autoplay popup. When I insert the IE6 compatible dvd, all that pulls up is a blank screen. It doesn't show up when I try to go through Media Player. Does that clarify it at all? I'm really not sure what I'm doing on all this.

    Can you not play the DVD on Media Player?



    Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "play" as it applies to IE.

Perhaps if you could post what type of files they are, it would be more help. When I say type, I mean what extension is on them, for example smithcounty.mpeg or smithcounty.mov or smithcounty.mp4.

Hi Mary,

Mostly, new system with windows vista operating came with Internet explorer 7 which is the update of your internet explorer 6. You can still install IE6 but that could cause a problem with your system registry because you are reverting your internet explorer to the old version.

If you are playing video using your dvd rw you may need to use windows media player or you may need to use power dvd or any video/dvd player that came with your computer.

You dvd/rw is a device where you can write or copy your pictures, documents or any files on a blank dvd or cd.

keep me posted.

Missing tool bar when I uploaded to Explorer 7. I cant click on tools to get it back because I dont have a tool bar to acces


Try to uninstall IE7. Once it's removed, restart your computer then it will revert back to the older version IE6. After that you can opt to install IE7 again or much better a newer version like 8 or 9.

To uninstall IE7, kindly follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Uninstall a Program under the Programs category
  4. In the Tasks pane, click View installed updates.
  5. In the list of installed updates, double-click Windows Internet Explorer 7. In the Uninstall an update dialog box, click Yes.

    Note If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
  6. Follow the instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.
  7. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
  8. After you restart your computer, open Internet Explorer. Click Help>About Internet Explorer and check if it's on version 6. If it is then proceed with upgrading to a higher version again.


    Hope this helps.

I need to change my internet explorer 8 to internet explorer 7 & i have windows vista


Hi,
Click on the start menu (orb), go to the Control Panel and select Programs & Features. From the list of installed software locate IE8 and uninstall it.

Restart your computer and download IE7 from here (its say's it's for XP, just ignore that it will work on Vista)

May i also recommend Mozilla Firefox. This much easier and faster than any version of Internet Explorer. Get it here >>>>>

Are you getting error message that reads " Either you dont have latest Java version or flash to run the videos.

As the problem with the IE 7.0 and IE 8.0 is related to cookies comes from the videos websites.

I would recommend you to rollback the IE to IE 6.0.

For further guidance on rollback, please visit this link:

Getting message stating add-on was running when problem occurred


Try going into your control panel & uninstall your Internet explorer, then re-install it. IE7 uninstall can be found in the main add-remove program window, IE6 uninstall can be found under the add-remove windows components part of the add-remove programs. To re-install IE7, though, you need to go to windows update to download IE7 again. This won't be a problem because uninstalling IE7 automaticaly returns you to IE6

Unable to work with Internet Explorer... :-(


It sounds as though the IE7 application may be corrupted. Try removing IE7.

To Remove IE7: Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Select Internet Explorer 7 > Select Remove. IE is a core component of XP. Hence, your machine will revert to IE6. Reboot pc. If you like IE7, visit Microsoft and download a fresh copy.

Good luck.
