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!

Print out problem in outlook express 6


Try Re-Installing Internet Explorer in Add or Remove Programs, i.e if you have IE7 or IE8 then you Remove it from list, re-boot and re-install IE7 or IE8 BUT if you are using IE6 then you can either Update it to IE7 or IE8.

Alernatively while in Add or Remove Programs you'll see 4 options in the Left hand side pane, choose Add/Remove Windows Components and then Uncheck Internet Explore and Outlook Express, then click Next etc, re-boot and again do the same except this time Check OE and IE.

WARNING make sure you have saved/backed up your emails b4 going on with this last method.

Best bet is to Un-Install/Remove or Update IE6? if not already done so, this is all I can suggest and if those options don't fix it then run a Anti-Malware program it picks up stuff the Anti-Virus programs can't.

Good Luck.

IE 7


Yes you can upgrade your Internet Explorer to IE7 (assuming you have IE6 right now)

You can download and install IE7 from Windows updates or go to the Windows Support Site to download it at http://support.microsoft.com

Only upgrade to IE7. Do not download and install IE8 Beta. It is still in testing. IE7 will not cause any problem with your HP Pavilion.

Compaq Presario R3150US shuts down with IE7, cpu usage goes up


Have you inatalled the latest service pack before you upgraded to IE7?
If not, suggest you un-install IE7, install the service pack, reboot computer and then upgrade to IE7.
If IE7 causes you problems the revert back to IE6.

Dell 922 printer all in one


I have a Dell 942, and I also ran into problems scanning. Basically, the Dell "All In One Center" refused to open, and when the printer generates a scan, it tries to send it to that application. What worked for me was uninstalling Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8. Once I was back to IE6, my Dell printer functioned normally. Upgrading to IE7 immediately "broke" it again.
I discovered this after running a repair installation of Windows (a recommended action any time you start experiencing weird problems). I did not have to format my hard drive or lose any data, although some applications had to be reinstalled or re-patched afterward. But the repair install took me back to IE6, and magically, my printer suddenly worked again! When I went to the Microsoft Update site and upgraded to IE7, poof! Dell AIO Center would no longer open, and I couldn't scan.
If this solution is helpful to you, please rate it.
Thank you,
~~Cheryl

Internet explorer canot display web page? ---winxp pro/ desktop computor


I found lots of problem with Ie7,what I personal do is
1.I have a second option for my Browser, that is I install mozilla
firefox.I use it for my default browser.You can download it here
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

2.I downgrade my IE7 to IE6 by going to ADD/Remove program
and uninstall IE7.After that your IE7 will become IE6
** Windows default is IE6,if you uninstall IE7,your system will become IE6 Automatically.

Best is to try the first step,I think this will help to solve your problem.
Takecare.

Hotspot connection problems


well you can't have IE6 and IE7 installed on the same computer at the same time, so I am guessing you are using 2 separate computers. More then likely it is a program with the internet settings of your computer rather then IE7.

try this app on the system with connectivity issues

http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html

just run it and click fix, this will flush all your internet settings and fixes about 85% of connectivity problems

if that doesn't work try reinstalling your wireless adapter, by removing the drive then reinstalling it.

if you are still having issues try scanning your system for spyware and adware

while IE7 handles web pages and scripts differently it still uses the same HTTP protocol that IE6 does, therefore there is no reason it wouldn't work when IE6 does.


Also in the future please post your Operating system to help diagnose the problem better.

Won't open after upgrading to IE7


Many programs are not yet compatible with IE7. As an ISP we are not recommending people to upgrade to this version yet. I have IE7 on my system and know that it is not compatible with many websites and that I have various other problems because of the installation. Personally, I am going to remove it from my system for now.
