I am not able to uninstall MS IE 8, it is not listed in the uninstall list of programs. The browser works sometimes but is not dependable

    Patreg - this is OK if the program is listed, which IE8 is not because it is an update to IE7 and not an independent program. I have now fixed it with FixYa's help by going into Programs and Features from the Control Panel and then click on TASKS pane on the left and click on View Installed Updates link. This gives all the MS updates which I had forgotten about. IE8 is listed there as an update and was easily uninstalled. Thanks for helping though
    Cheers

To remove the installed MS IE, just open the control panel (click Start, select Control Panel), choose Add/Remove Windows Components (left panel), unclick the check mark on the Internet Explorer box and click next until finished.

Trying to disable/turnoff ie8 in dell latitude 610


Disable Internet Explorer 8 from Windows 7
1. Click on the Start Menu and go to Control Panel. Change the View by category to Large or Small icons then from the Control Panel list go into Programs and Features.
2. In the Programs and Features window click on the "Turn Windows features on or off" link on the left hand side. The Windows Features screen opens up, uncheck the box next to Internet Explorer 8.
3. You will get a confirmation box when you uncheck it saying it may affect other Windows features. It will if you don't have another browser installed but otherwise everything that usually opens in IE will open in your default browser.
4. After verifying you want to turn it off click OK. You will get a progress notification while Windows turns off IE 8. Restart the system.
5. After restarting, you will notice Internet Explorer 8 is no longer there. Anything you had linked to IE will be associated with another browser if you have one installed. It will also no longer appear in the Set Default Programs section.
6. If you go to the Open With list in Explorer you will see a generic Internet Browser icon that will open up whatever is your default browser.

Everytime i keep trying to load yoville on my fb a/c it wont load up at all i keep getting "stack overflow :126" but i created an a/c for my daughter and yoville loading straight up for her and i wondered...


It's probably a browser or windows error if using IE - try using firefox or a different browser. Yoville also has occasional loading problems that generally get fixed fairly quickly. Stack overflow means the program has run out of memory space to store parameters to - the solution to this would be to clear your browser and try login again. ( Internet options for IE or clear private data on firefox), then restart your windows. It also is possibly a java script error - you can update java for IE at http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp
To fix IE6, usually there is a check box in add/remove programs, windows components, uncheck it, then recheck it and it will install IE again. If using IE6SP1, it will possibly be listed as a program in add/remove programs, simply click uninstall and it will then offer a repair or restore option, use repair. Restart is required. If using IE8, try going back to IE7, uninstalling will revert back to the 7 version. The 7 version works far better than 8. You might also try updating your flash player if the problem persists.

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:
