    New computer, and New to windows 7 and ie8. Didn't like ie8 so decided to go to ie7 and deleted ie8. Unfortunately there was no ie7 installed so now I am on laptop to find out how I get my internet back! I re installed the windows 7 disk I received with my new computer but still have no way to access internet to download ie7!
    Help is appreciated.

    In Device Manager what is listed under Network Adapters? What, if any, warnings or errors are in Device Manager.

    I'm not sure if I've grasped the wrong end of the stick firmly with both hands but ...

    if you have a USB stick/flashdrive you could download Portable Firefox via your laptop onto the USB stick and then install that on the new Windows 7 PC to give you a browser.
