Mega problems after IE 7 download

I downloaded Internet Explorer 7. Now when I try to access Google or other search engines I get the message "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" I have attempted to go back to previous restore points and get the message "Couldn't restore due to no changes being made" Which of course is not the case. I can get to this site by clicking a shortcut for the BBC home page and then typing the PC advisor address into the web bar. How do I get rid of IE 7 and get back to normality?

Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs, Windows Internet Explorer 7.

You should keep IE 7 but now need to look for why its not accessing search engines.

First question is it accessing any web sites?

Try ,Control panel,Network connections,Right click ,Local Area Connections, Repair, See if that helps.

Thanks folks, solved it. There was a conflict with an add on (Lost Goggles) disabled that and all is well!
