You previously loaded the wrong thing...One caution, you may want to un-install IE7 before you do this...Then re-install afterwards. Service Pack 3 is still using IE6 as its base component. I have read on a post here that if you have IE7 installed before you install SP3 and something goes wrong with IE7 you can't un-install it, but if you remove it first...Install SP3...Then re-install IE7 you will be able to remove it if needed.

I searched for the download page at microsoft but could only find the over view.

I guess that I should have fully read it through, firsthand...The answer to your question is I don't know for sure.

I really don't think that it will be a problem...You can't get it through the update method...Give it a try...

Any suggestions please


repair IE7 or even install IE7 over itself, then turn off all resident protection and try again?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
