Hi everyone has anyone has this problem. i was using IE 7 Beta with no problems and then was asked to upgrade when the version came out. upon updating i have the customise your settings page (http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx) coming up with a blue background and nothing else. I have done everything that microsoft sent me but no joy. It means my Homepage will not come up until this has been set. but as i can not see it i can not set it up . i can just type my website in and then it seems ok its just i can not use the homepage setting even though my home page is set as before.

How would I get online to reinstall it if I have deleted IE7?

I have done it before by going to:

Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs

And by uninstalling IE7 it actually rolls back to IE6, assuming you had IE6 installed on your computer first. If you wanted some 'insurance', then I would install Firefox first, as this is a free web browser, and you will be able to get online using Firefox.

You are welcome.

For what it's worth, I have seen a couple of instances where the current version of IE7 has failed in the past week. I don't think MS has all the bugs worked out yet. Fortunately it is working just fine on my computer, and I like it very much.
