Hai ! This is my first post on this forum guys.

First time today i installed IE 7 Beta 3.
It upgrades the IE6. But thankfully the Add/Remove list in control panel has an entry for uninstalling if we un want it.

My question is Can i install IE7 Beta3 With My old IE6 ? so i can have bought browsers !!!

The IE-7 will probably over write the IE-6, at least that has been the patern with M$.

You might try copying the IE-6 to a CD, that way if you don't like the IE-7 you can always go back if it is over written.

Alternatively you could use Firefox or Opera, both are stand alone browsers which have some security advantages over IE.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hai DC3

Thanks for the post. it seems there is no leagle way to have bought ie 6 & 7. also i think it is not possible to have bought versions of the browsers since bought have to used the same registry keys & values.

but i see there is an enty in Add/Remove programs list to un-install ie7 and to keep the old ie6.

Firefox and Opera. Thank dc3. actually i am aware of thease browsers and have installed currently.

No you can't have both IE6 and IE7 running on your pc at the same time.
IE7 will over write IE6 ... But if you want to go back to IE6 at a later date, just uninstall IE7 and it will automatically revert back to IE6.
Just remember that IE7 is still a beta version..... so it may still have some bugs in it!
