"DAW" <dwilli10@xxxxxxx> a écrit dans le message de groupe de discussion : j8c24r$h2v$1@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxRunning a stable XP Home for several years I finally accepted the IE8 upgrade offered during updates. I did create a new restore point before, however.
IE8 installed but really ran wild, any time I ran it it said it had "recovered" a URL, or some such thing. I could never get it to accept any of my desired locations. It did present "Go to your home page" as an option, but it always went back to that "recovered, maybe found" location.
After fighting that I did a system restore and got back a greatly damaged IE7, no tool bars, scrambled favorites, wrong links, etc.
I did restores, uninstall of IE7 through add-remove windows components, looked at sites which offer a download of a current version of IE7, but they all included some other programs or toolbars.
I found a MS "Fix it" site which didn't respond automatically but I did a manual step of removing one line in the registry.
Still no tool bar, no access to the toolbar/command headings, nothing.
After a restore it tried to load the home page but fails quickly by timeout, nothing on the progress bar.
After many such manipulations I have an installation that pops up for 1 second, no toolbars, etc.
I do have another computer that I can use to download whatever I need to copy to this laptop, that system runs XP Pro.
This system is too old to do a full re-install, even if I can find the XP CD after moving here.
Any suggestions on how to get a clean reinstall of IE7?
Thanks for your consideration,
Well for a start use a cleaner (orseveral) to clean out all cookies and temporary internet files. You can get IE7 here:
I assume it is without toolbars etc.
Thanks- Are there cleaners I can download to another computer and copy here?
CCleaner, Glary utilities, boith feee and pretty good I find.
The IE7 no add-ons I found has no tool bar, no communications.
What do you mean by 'no tools bars'? If you mean the normal IE ones they can be shown via the Dislay menu? And what do you mean by no communiocations?
What about doing the standard disk cleanup?
The Windows one you mean? Not much good in my opinion, it seems to leave everything that is directly concerned with windows and only removes third party temporary files.
