I recently installed the new Internet Explorer 7.

I've noticed a problem with playing live streams from the net, they no longer play.

Any ideas why this has happened? Is there a setting I need to adjust?

And if not, how can I downgrade back to Internet Explorer 6, which didn't suffer from this problem.

Hi Jonathan1987

Please note that Ie7 is only a beta version - therefore there is no quaruntee that all the features will actual work.

To remove IE7 and revert to IE6

1. Go to Control Panel
2. Click Add or Remove Programs
3. Click Show Updates checkbox
4. Click whatever version of IE7 you have. For example "Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview"
5. Click the Change/Remove button

Reboot and you should revert back to IE6.

Thanks a lot. I found the source of the original problem, something wierd had happened to Windows Media Player settings.

I will keep a record of your instuctions, incase I encounter more problems.

Thanks again.

D-T makes a very valid point. A BETA program is one that is published for public testing, and will usually contain bugs, some of which could turn out to be substantial. Beta's should never be used for what is called "mission critical" purposes (that means "don't rely on them" in plain English). Unless you have some testing experience, and are fairly comfortable with trouble-shooting, you should avoid Beta versions and await the official release of the product.
Regards,
John

I couldn't agree more jgweed. I never try Beta products on my home PC just in case (I do it on the school ones :thumbsup:). I've read of numerous disaster stories with Beta products, namely things like Beta security programs where they start removing everything in sight and you end up not being able to uninstall the program. I agree that in your case that probably will not occur, and you may have the knowledge to combat such problems, but just a little warning, as jgweed said, you should avoid Beta software until the real versions are released.
