Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7
I had IE6 which worked fine. I upgraded to IE7 with no problems but when I click on IE7, a screen flashes briefly like it is going to start and then it goes away. I've uninstalled all toolbars (such as Google). I've also monitored Event Viewer but it doesn't post any entries when I try to start IE7.
This usually happens after installation. 1. Click START–>RUN and type cmd
2. At the prompt, type cd and press ENTER
3. Type cd Program Files and press ENTER
4. Type cd Internet Explorer and press ENTER
5. Type regsvr32 IEPROXY.DLL
6. You should get a confirmation that the IEPROXY.DLL has been registered. You can then close all windows and try Internet Explorer again.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, try
Launching IE with add-ons disabled:
1. Click START–>RUN
2. Type iexplore -extoff
You can also create a shortcut so that you can always run Internet Explorer this way.
1. Right-click on the Desktop
3. Enter in iexplore -extoff
Hope this helps

After 5 hours of searching and trial and error, I found one guy who got it right!!!!!
If Internet Explorer 7 cannot be found in the Add or Remove Programs group,
Make sure all files and folders are un-hidden
My Computer > Tools > View tab > look for Hidden files and folders, now select show hidden files and folders
Now run the file spuninst.exe it can be found in your Windows directory/ie7/spuninst
Use search to find spuninst.exe and choose the one in C:\WINDOWS\ie7\spuninst and click on it! Unfortunately, however, I wasn't able to reinstall ie7 (so far), but ie6 is working fine!
