Hello,

I made the mistake of installing Internet Explorer 8 on my Windows Vista home premium Dell 1525 Inspiron Laptop. I did not care much for it, so I wanted to go back to IE7, but when i tried to do so, it told me my OS didn't support IE7. So I figure I only use IE rarely anyway so whatever. The version of Internet Explorer 8 I have is 8.0.6001.18241 and I noticed there is a Beta2 upgrade. I downloaded it, tried installing it, but get a message saying I have a previous build of Internet explorer 8 and must first remove it before installing the "latest version". I don't know that that can be done. Can anyone PLEASE advise me on how to either go BACK to IE7 for Vista (each time I look they only have an XP version), or how to upgrade to the newest IE8 build? I would greatly appreciate any info....Thanks:eek:

I am using IE7 in Windows Vista Home Basic and it runs flawlessly. Here is the download page. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...BE-3385-447C-8A30-081805B2F90B&displaylang=en You will most likely have to uninstall IE8 from the Programs and Fetures in Control Panel. I to ran into problems with IE8. And for me the Beta 2 was no better than the Beta. After you uninstall IE8. Restart your computer and install IE7. If needed enable Compatibility Mode for IE7.
