I'm currently stuck having to use MSIE7 provided by Yahoo, and in my humble opinion that sucker sucks.
Everytime that I open it it opens to the Welcome To IE7 page and tells me that I have to set some options, which I do, then that sucker just flat refuses to save my settings and tells me that my settings weren't saved.
Having to go through this every time I open that browser has me ready to scream. I tried upgrading to MSIE8 several times, but alas, all I ever end up with is IE7 and its welcome page.
I went into the Add/Remove Programs thingy to see about uninstalling IE7 so that I could do a clean install of IE8... BUT there isn't any mention of Internet Explorer there at all.
I also looked in the Add/Remove Windows Components thingy to disable\uninstall it but that says that Internet Explorer is 0.0 MB in size.
I checked it for removal anyway, but that didn't do me any good either as IE8 still wouldn't install and I still got that same IE7 welcome screen.
So then I looked in the IE folder in the Program Files and didn't find an uninstall icon there either. I even tried to install IE6 but it wouldn't install because a newer version of IE was detected on my PC.
Now, as I want to kick IE7 to the curb, and install IE8, my question is; "How how the heck do I get rid of IE7?" Do I have to delete the whole Internet Explorer folder or is there something that I missed?
