Hi Peeps

I installed Internet Explorer 7 - decided I didnt like it - so uninstalled it....

Problem is I now have missing files and if I try and use I.E it wont perform a search at all

I cant log into Yahoo (keeps coming up with an error message)

Luckily I have Mozilla - not too keen on that, but hey at least I can browse the net

Tried to restore my system to an earlier date, but with no luck

Sooooo, short of doing a repair from my Boot Disc, is there anyway I can find out what files I am missing?

Oh and I occasionally get the 'Blue Screen of Death'

Help Me Purleeeeeeeeeeeze..... arghhhhhhhhhhhh (screams and thinks about throwing laptop outa the window!)

emm :thumbsup:

Try the two methods to repair IE mentioned here:


If these do not work, then let us know.

Many thanks for your help...

Had a few problems as my laptop came installed with Windows XP and wasn't sure if I had the discs.

Anyways, I followed the instructions and located any missing files under my search option - a lot of trial and error as I'm no expert (as I'm sure you can gather lol) - but I got there in the end...

As for Internet Explorer 7 - I did a google on problems associated with uninstalling this program and found that I'd not uninstalled it completely it seems, so I went in and found the necessary file to complete the uninstall - and thats where it will stay - uninstalled.

Concerning my Yahoo - I had a missing dll(?) library, so another google search and hey presto downloaded the missing file.

All is now well (it seems), so fingers crossed!

I'm learning (slowly but surely) I may not know the 'jargon' but with a bit of common sense, glass of wine and the odd bit of swearing, I'm now up and running again - yay!!!

Once again many thanks

IE 7 is one of Microsoft's many BETA programs. BETA means a program is in its testing phase and will have bugs, errors, etc. to any damage extent. Since Microsoft feels the urge to win the "Toolbar & Search Engine Comapny Wars" (Google vs. Yahoo. vs. Microsoft's MSN), it has released a string of new programs to "prove" it PWNs the other companies. Unfortunately, many of these programs are BETA, IE 7 being one of the more damaging and buggy BETA programs.
