I tried to uninstall and got this message.
Set cannot copy the file ieeula.chm.Ensure that the location specified below is correct,or change it and insert Windows NT service pack uninstall directory in the drive you specify.

Copy files from C:\Windows\ie7 (Browse)
This I don't understand. How to.

I'm the last one who should be giving computer advice - so please don't consider this that, merely some encouragement from one sometimes weary computer user to another - gentle smile. Sometimes it's seems to be simply easier to uninstall a program and reinstall a fresh version than cope with the frustration of trying to fix something.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Did you try rolling back to ie 6 by removing ie7 from Add/Remove Programs and then do an ie7reinstall?

That's the first thing I tried. I tried many times, but it always comes up with the same Popups.The uninstaller must be missing,or something.
Have been using Opera till I can get sorted. I tried to take a screen shot of the popups,with Snagit, and I cant save to file either.Another popup with a red circle and white cross,appears with Snagit written on it.Thanks for replying,Tork.

DSTM,

1 - Did you try a system restore to a date before the problem began?

2 - Does SnagIt not work at all?

3 - If ie7 doesn't work properly and SnagIt doesn't work properly - then I wonder if you have experienced malware recently? Or have you done any scans recently to check for malware?

4 - You may want to post in Am I Infected? What Do I do?

I run scans with SAS Pro, and Malwarebytes, and came up clean.
Decided to do a clean reinstall of Windows,as Windows hasn't been stable lately,also.
Figure this will be quicker, than chasing this problem.
Thanks for your help and advice,Tork,Much appreciated. :thumbsup:
