IE 7 beta and IE 6 SP2 got screwed up
Posted on 2006-06-10
System is Windows XP SP 2 with IE 6. It has Norton Internet Security with 90-day Antivirus. Later on Antivirus got expired, but the Norton firewall is working fine. IE 7 beta 2 was installed successfully and started working fine. Then CA eTrust Antivirus was installed and that was also working fine.
Tried to install the Norton System Works 2006 with Nortom Ghost and Norton Antivrus. Installation went Ok, but when we restarted the system, Norton System Works was not responding, there was blank screen appearing on the monitor, tried to kill it but did not work.
Then cam to know about Norton is not compatible with IE 7 beta. Tried to uninstall IE 7 beta update, that even did not go thru well instead IE totally got screwed up. Now when I open IE it opens up but shows as IE 7 in the about, but no tab functionality, no internet connection etc. It completely got screwed up. No way to download windows updates.
Please help me getting back to IE6.
