Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

IE7 flashes briefly when I click on it and then goes away

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.

Hi,

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
2. New–>Shortcut
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!!!!!
Try this:

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!

I'm running XP Home SP3 with IE 6. Need to upgrade to later browser...7 or 8. Can I skip 7& go right to 8? Is this a good idea? My computer dates back to 2003?


It would be a good idea to upgrade from IE6 to IE8. There have been many security fixes and upgrades to IE since IE6 was released and even after IE7 too.

I would suggest upgrading to the latest version possible for your computer!

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.

Download the installer for whatever version of IE you would like to use to your desktop. Next go into the control panel and then to add and remove programs. Uninstall the current version of IE then reboot and reinstall IE from the installer on your desktop.

Access "Control Panel".
Access "Add/Remove Programs".
Uninstall IE8, which will re-install the previous version (IE6? IE7?).
Reboot, and see if the right-mouse-button is now working.

Cannot register in any website:i cannot type a leeter in any box


I need to know what version of Internet Explorer you have and when the problem fist started. IE6 does not update any longer. IE7 or IE8 would be fine. Microsoft now only supports IE7 and IE8. If you have neither then you should begin with IE7 download and don't worry soon Microsoft will have you up to IE8 and updating. If updates are turn on in IE6 nothing happens. Depending on your computer, DSL or Cable is the best way to get this working right. This may not be the issue either. You may have let Google Chrome be your default browser.I need to know your operating system first to help you better. Sea Breeze

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.
