My wife downloaded IE 7 from a yahoo site.

This "upgrade" has slowed our internet access to to a near stanstill level.

I tried system restore but I could not find any restore points. I have five distribution points for this week and this is it. None of these work.

How can I get back to IE 6 ?

"To uninstall Internet Explorer 7 to return to Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP

1. Click "Start," and then click "Control Panel."
2. Click "Add or Remove Programs."
3. Check "Show Updates" at the top of the dialog box.
4. Scroll down the list and highlight the version of Internet Explorer 7 that you are running, and then click "Change/Remove." (If you are running Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview March 20 or later, it is not necessary to check "Show Updates.")"


Many ISPS load special skins and fetures to the IE shell; they may have not interfaced these to IE7 or completely tested them as yet.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Please see this BC thread.

The only easy day was yesterday.
