How Do I Completely Remove and Reinstall IE7 ?
Posted on 2007-11-27
I am having an issue with Internet Explorer where it will not print web pages (it prints the html code instead). I posted a question to ask for help, but nobody was able to resolve it.
That's fine, I'll just repair it or reinstall it. That's what I thought. Silly me.
I have tried a couple of things, to no avail:
1. I have gone to Add / Remove Programs, and selected "Add/Remove Windows Components" and deselected Internet Explorer, but it gives me an error. I have reselected it, but it gives me an error.
2. I have gone to Add / Remove Programs, and selected show updates, and I see internet explorer, but it doesn't give me any opportunity to repair or remove it - I can only repair / remove the security updates that I installed since ie7 was installed.
3. I have tried running the install again (by the way, this is the worst install engine I have every seen from any software vendor in my life - I cannot believe that Micrsoft released their browser using this install engine - but then again, Microsoft has let us down many times before), but after 45 minutes it just says that "The install was unable to complete". No error message ... nothing.
Can someone help me find a way to completely uninstall ie7, so (and I cringe when I say this) that I can reinstall it ?
