Probably what happened is since you were half way through the installation, the computer thinks it's already installed IE7. First thing I suggest is you download IE7 and choose the "download now and install later" option. This way you can install it 100 times if you need to without having to download it over and over. And burn the .exe to a CD if you can so you have it permanently. Anyway, if you can, I would use the system restore to revert your system back to the point before you started the initial installation (please remember to back up any data that may have changed since the attempted installation. This will clear any partial install of IE7. After you've reverted, download the IE7 installation exe and burn it if you can then try to install again. Hopefully this time it will go through smoothly.
If you cannot revert your system, then you may have more trouble. download the IE7 exe and run it as normal one more time. If this doesn't work, use the Add/remove windows components and see if it lists IE6 or IE7. Try uninstalling/reinstalling from there.
If none of this hels any, then it's out of my realm I'm afraid. I've had a couple issues with partial installations of other programs, but with Microsofts damned IE/Windows integration, it's very hard to deal with problems that are relatively simple with other programs.
One thing though, IE7 is good I think. I still use Firefox of course, but it looks like Microsoft is catching up.
Hello, I tried installing ie 7 but it was taking over an hour, so I restarted my computer. A friend advised me to intall it all over again, and this time I just left it downloading overnight. This morning however, when I access the internet, I still see the old version and now my system takes forever to access any site. I have high speed connection. Could you help me to at least get my system the way it was before?
