    History:

    Win 7 Professional with all current updates an patches that Windows update wanted installed.

    IE 9 stopped working, it would just flash on and then off.

    Followed a MS guide that was to FIXIT and the program failed.

    Tried Method 2, manual reset of IE options, In the control panel I clicked 'Interent Options' nothing happens. Never get to the reset button I was to click.

    Another forum thread suggest to uninstall IE9. Could not do it via the Windows Update as this was installed as part up the original installation. Followed the other open to turn off IE 9 which is suppose to remove IE9 and then Windows Update can reinstall it. That worked and I now had a flashing IE8. The Update failed though. MS forum says to go to the IE9 site and download it myself. That failed.

    Now was told do a recovery. That failed, not surprising as it was a restore point created by one of the earlier attemps to fix the problem. An older backup from March was also an option and and that failed saying is was missing files needed.

    Tried a number of other suggestions and something via msconfig that I have forgotten now. It was 2 AM and was getting rather loopy and frustrated. I decided to follow the steps again that seemed to at least get me IE 8 and did the turn off again. That failed and now I cannot boot as it is stuck trying to revert the computer back to the state it was in before I tried the function. Safe mode said it did a restore and had me started though. I tried to restart normally and I was right back at the reverting problem again.

    I REALLY DO NOT :( want to do a system reinstall but I am at a lose where to go next.

    I happen to have ReImage on my system from an earlier problem and that did not help the IE problem. Just added to the pain making me have to reinstall updates.

    Well, with this lack of replies, I guess I have my answer. :(

    I did get it up within Safe mode but nothing seemed to help and no friends have given a reply that I have not already tried. So I am moving important files and will reinstall my Win 7.
