Can't uninstall IE7

  daisy2bell 14:29 02 Jan 2007

Everytime I try to uninstall IE7, I get the following message.

Setup cannot copy the file ieeula.chm

Ensure that the location specified below is correct,or change it and insert "Windows NT Service Pack Uninstall Directory" in the drive you specify

Any ideas please, Thanks

The reason I need to uninstall is that IE7 mucks up my Windows Movie Maker

win xp sp2

Hi, I assume you are using Control Panel>Add and Remove which is the normal way to uninstall IE7 - if that is giving you the problem, try Start>Search IE7 and delete anything you find that way. Though Add and Remove, would be preferable. Removing IE7 will automatically revert you to IE6.

Thanks guys. In the end the whole system became very unstable. So I decided to do a restore from a Acronis backup. When it had finished, a popup appeared with the message that the backup file was corrupted and that restore could not continue.
So you can guess what happened next..... complete and fresh install.

Hi, sorry you had to take such drastic action, but at lest you managed it. Once more IE7 bites-the-dust.

hmm - at least, not at lest :-)

Many of us happen to get on fine with IE 7.

Yes I know - I tried it several times, unfortunately I am not among the 'lucky ' ones.
But it is possibly a debatable point, as to how many are happy with it, and as to how many are disappointed. It will be many moons before I try it again ...

I must say that I grew to like it, but as it's mucking up my windows movie maker it had to go.
I'm still running it (IE7) on my laptop
