IE 8

  jonski 19:01 13 Feb 09

Hi Guys, recently updated to ie 8 and have had loads of problems since, crashing, no drop down address bar, various other things, thing is i cannot restore to ie 7, it says i haven`t a restore point. I`ve tried downloading ie7 from Microsofts website only to be informed upon installing that ie7 is not compatable with vista 32 bit??

Yet it ran perfectly ok before ie8....Any suggestions on how i can get it back?

Try un-installing IE8 - go to Start>Control Panel>Add and Remove, and in the left-hand column click on Add/Remove Windows Components, this may then restore you to IE7.

As Technotiger but check 'Programs and Features' . Posh name for add/remove. If you can't find it then look under latest updates.
First, though, I'd try reset under tools, internet options and advanced tab.
