I have recently rebuilt my PC and reinstalled Windows 7 Pro SP1 on the cleanly formatted C: drive. I just enabled the Guest Account so I can let others access the PC while keeping my personal files and settings protected.
However, I found that IE11 will not connect to the Internet. On top of that, opening the Network & Sharing Center will not show the network; nor will it allow me to connect.
At the same time, Chrome and Firefox both connect to the Internet with no problems whatsoever.
I did a search and saw one report that IE11 will not work on a Guest Account. I seem to recall that, before I rebuilt my PC, I had IE10 installed and turned off Automatic Upgrades for IE. The Guest Account seemed to work fine - but I didn't spend much time there and cannot recall if IE10 worked or not.
In any case, I was attempting to uninstall IE11 and install IE10, but after uninstalling by Turn Off Windows Features for IE11, IE10 won't install. I get the message:
So, in essence, I have two questions!
1) Can IE11 run under the Guest Account - if so, how?
2) (I think I've resolved the 2nd issue) How can I get IE10 to install?
I went back to Windows Update, clicked to show updates, and found an IE update and removed that - but I need to reboot before attempting again to install IE10.
