    Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong thread. I'm in a spot of bother, bordering on frantic panic.

    I recently attempted to install Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3. I have not installed any IE betas previously. I got an error message saying it couldn't install. The troubleshooting steps didn't help me. However I found out it was a registry related issue. I then restarted my PC running windows XP sp2 and tried again.
    Same message. Bummer, I thought, Oh well, it's just IE. I open iTunes to relax.
    TUNES DONT PLAY. The sound icon is gone from the control bar. Infact no sound whatsoever is coming out. It's complete chaos.
    Might I also mention I installed 3 windows updates at the same time as IE 7 B3, but I don't think this is the problem.
    Many programs don't work now. All my System Tools give me error messages. I bought a registry cleaner (Registry Mechanic) and it fixed 130 problems. Still screwed up. Gtalk was uninstalled, I can't even access system restore! Here is the the ******* of an error message: The message displayed (with an annoying default BEEP from the actual PC) is "The Application failed to start etc because iertutil.dll could not be found. Restarting the app may fix the problem."

    If any one can help, it would be greatly appreciated. And feel free to ask more questions I will answer all day if it fixes this evil problem.

    EDIT: I just reinstalled iTunes. You click to play a song and they freeze at 0 minutes. Also, I can't access Internet explorer at all and I can't run Google Updater or any other goddam program that might be remotely useful. PLEASE help me.

    So you think I should just install that? Should I also do that regedit stuff you mentioned? Are you sure?

    I don't want to kill this, it's a family rig.

    OK Update:

    I installed the .dll. Thanks man, It solved half of my problems. I can now run system restore. But sound is still screwed.

    Come to think of it, I should probably try and restore my system

    I'll get back to you in approx 5 minutes. Thanks again.

    Copy the file to the system32 folder and then reboot and see what happens from there.

    Forget the registry stuff.

    If no luck, see if you can uninstall it. It should be present in Add/Remove programs if you check "show updates".

    If not, use a command line to run the uninstaller, or navigate there and run it.

    It's possible System Restore may be available as well once you have the dll in place. I'm assuming you just get some kind of blank calander or IE error when you try to open it, right?

    Ok, saw your update -- glad it accomplished something. What I would do now is uninstall IE7 AND after that run System Restore as well.
