Hi everyone,

My name's Ron and I live in the SF East Bay in Piedmont area of Oakland. I was originally a programmer, but most of those jobs have moved to India so I'm trying to enjoy the last years of my employment at a large corp here in the area doing analysis/design/project mgt (all of which are NOWHERE near as fulfilling as web development). On the side, I support website develpment.

Anyway, while on line and being harried to get some changes to a website page, I was alerted that there was an important update from Microsoft and I just clicked OK, figuring is was something to tighten up security or what-have-ya. I didn't notice that it was an update to IE v7!

What a mistake that was!! I'm now unable to click on links to automatically open up IE. I've found a couple of crude ways to get v7 to work, but most are way too manual. At first I was getting message that the links needed to be associated to a program as though they were documents with bad extensions...

At this point, I'd love to back out, but, of course, there is no help from MS without paying for someone to get me out of the problems they got me into.

Anyone else having browsing issues v7?

Appreciate any help, including how I might back out of v7 and get back to v6 which worked WAY more intuitively (at least for me).

I happen to LIKE project management, but there is no accounting for tastes.
I believe there is a way to revert to IE6, or you can simply switch to Firefox.

Internet Explorer 7 should be listed as Windows Internet Explorer 7 in Add Remove Programs in your control panel.

It should uninstall without any issues.

I agree with jgweed about Firefox. Use it.
