I GOT THE LATEST IE7 WINDOWS UPDATE, AND NOW MY BT YAHOO BROADBAND WILL NOT START UP, MY SEARCH COMPANION HAS GONE AWOL, AND MY MCAFEE SECURITY CENTRE WILL NOT START UP AS I KEEP GETTING A WINDOWS IE7 ERROR MESSAGE "DO YOU WISH TO KEEP RUNNING SCIPTS ON THIS PAGE", WHICH DOES NOT GO AWAY. ANY IDEAS ANYONE PLS?

Hi, go to Control Panel>Add/Remove and uninstall IE7, this will automatically put you back to IE6.

PS - Please do not use all capital letters - this is considered shouting and is much frowned upon.

had bt broadband, acafee site advisor and norton running for a good while no problems try a reinstall, recently removed all bt and yahoo clutter, as it all appeared a complete waste of space and very much a marketing tool for themselves, i rum regcrub xp and ccleaner after and during any reinstall, hope this helps

Forgot about the caps lock, I was on the phone to BT helpdesk(India). Will try the uninstall! Many thanks!!

did they ask for your patience, and advise a reboot? comical service!

if you read my earlier threads, i kept getting that message , but only on bt yahoo page, i think regscrubxp removes something i solved it by installing stand alone flash player, but since i got rid of all there junk (inc help desk icon lol)i've had no probs

I installed IE7 but it slowed down my laptop noticeably. I wasn't sure how to go back to IE6 as I thought if I uninstalled it I would be left without anything but thanks to Technotiger I see that all you have to do is uninstall IE7 and you automatically go back to IE6 - I have now done this - thanks very much Technotiger.

No apologies necessary ... hope you are sorted by now.


Paul M .... Cheers.

Thanks for all your help, I uninstalled IE7 and re-installed BT Yahoo/McAfee. Everything OK now! You would think Windows would have tested their software compatibility with other software!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Well funnily enough its the other way round.

The Beta testing of software is to allow BT and others to make their software IE7 compliant.

It matters not really, the important thing is you are up and running again.
