Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

1 Answer

I have been having trouble with getting to open a pilot program First, I needed to update to Flashplayer 10, in working with the support there they tell me I need to update my browser from IE 6 to IE 7. I had no problem using the IE 6 prior to an update they made and now only me but others are having the same problem. I am reluctant to change to IE 7 or go to Foxfire as they are suggesting. I have MS Widnows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Would you offer me any suggestions? I am able to view items from other sites and hard headed to see this is my problem. I told them it was their coding. All worked beautiful before update made. Thank you .."Teacup"

    Thank you for your help. I did confirm on another computer that IE7 would help me to see the link I wanted to use. I have since downloaded IE7, however when it came into my computer it went to my Documents. Should I move this to the programs before I install it? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thank you for your advise, but being hard headed I have to see that it works before I am convinced. I helps to know there are smart techs who can get you on the road again. Great job and service.

You can't fight progress, especially with software. Microsoft is just about ready to roll out IE 8 which will make IE 6 even more obsolete.

Don't fight it, just roll with it. I know change sucks sometimes but if you plan on using computers you're gonna have to deal.

As far as browsers go you shouldn't be hesitant to use Firefox.

It's widely accepted as the best browser around.


and save yourself some grief. If you don't like the problem you can always just uninstall it or better yet just keep it as a backup.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Best of luck!

    The location of the file doesn't matter. Most of microsoft's downloads are self-installers. Once you double-click the downloaded file it will automatically copy all the necessary files to the program files folders.

    Glad I could help. Don't get too attached to 7 now, remember 8 is coming very soon.

    Also give firefox a shot, seriously. It's the best.

    Take care.

Loses use of flashplayer?

I'm not sure what you are running for "cleaners", but it sounds like your programs are mis-interpreting the registry entries of flashplayer to be an unwanted program. Look in the program's settings for an area where you can allow exceptions, and include flash player in the list. The other thing you might try is not running a registry cleaner, as most of these programs cause more trouble than they do good. If you are using them to make your computer run faster and more reliable, regular disk cleanup and defragmenter use will do more for you than any registry cleaner
