I use F Fox about 80% of the time and IE the rest. Here are some issues I have had and still have. I am using XP Home SP2 on a Dell dimension.
Last November i had a virus or what ever and ended up formatting the C and doing a fresh install of everything. I just checked and Internet Explorer is installed in Program Files.
IE 7 has always worked very very slow even with Phishing off etc. I can not open a PDF file, the program always crashes. If I know it is a PDF I can save to my computer and then open it that way.
I have tried to uninstall many times and go back to # 6 but I always get this message. Set cannot copy the file ieeula.chm.
I read on a forum the information on how to Delete that follows and I still get the info above. Below you will see the steps.
Now I no longer have all my tool bars in IE only the address bar and Links and no way to turn the rest on or access.
Today I did a system restore to a month ago and that still didn't help plus I tried re-installing IE & on top without deleting and I get the following msg.
Windows cannot find 'http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=63939'
If you know any where I might post to solve the problem I would love to know.
Below are the methods I used for the uninstall and I still get the above msg.
Method 1: Use the Add or Remove Programs tool
To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.
2. In the list of programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 7, and then click Remove.
3. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.
4. After you uninstall Internet Explorer 7, double-click the Internet Explorer icon to verify that Internet Explorer 6 is restored.

Method 2: Run the Spuninst.exe program that is in the IE7 folder
If you cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 7 by using Method 1, use the uninstaller file that is available in the IE7 folder to uninstall Internet Explorer 7. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then click OK.
Note In this command, %windir% points to the Drive:\Windows folder. The placeholder Drive represents the hard disk partition that contains the Windows operating system files.
By default, the IE7 folder is a hidden folder. Therefore, you may have to make this folder visible. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Open Windows Explorer.
b. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
c. Click the View tab.
d. In the Advanced settings list, under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
2. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.
3. After you uninstall Internet Explorer 7, double-click the Internet Explorer icon to verify that Internet Explorer 6 is restored.
