    Don't think so,
    but never tried.
    I think IE7 is default in Vista, not an add-on like XP

    No, you aren't funny at all...
    It doesn't bother me at all when the critisims are valid. Most of the
    complaints are not. They're mostly that it's not 'laid out' the same as
    People cant find their favourites button , they cant move this, that or the
    other.... It's a NEW version of IE FFS!

    And it isn't crappy. It IS a major improvement on IE6 both visually,
    security wise, and in the way users can use it.
    It took me less than a day to adapt to the layout, and how to use it. I have
    had NO problems with any of the computers it has been installed on, and ALL
    the IE6 customisations I have were automatically installed in IE7 when I
    installed it and work exactly as they worked in IE6.
    Far more people DONT find it disgusting. In fact most of us find it a LOT
    better than IE6. But most of us dont feel the need to comment (or complain)
    about that in a newsgroup.

    Who appointed you as a spokesperson for EVERYONE?!

    best, M/

    Never tried Vista or had to remove it. Above was an email reply from MS - I
    aksed how to remove it - so there is no link. If add/remove programs doesnt
    work, go to the contact area of MS and send them a question - they did
    respond within 24hrs.

    No, what's not working is that they dont/cant adapt to a cosmetic change in
    the software they're using. That's NOT a bug or fault in IE7. It's a
    fault/preoblem with the person using the software.
    Just because you DONT like the layout of IE7 doesn't mean everyone/anyone
    else wont like it.
    Because it's a NEW version of IE. You want the old IE6 look? Then keep using
    IE6. It's THAT simple.
    No it isn't. It's the way they decided to make IE7.

    It is stupidity on the part of users who complain IE7 is 'broke' because of
    that, and stupid to complain about it in a newsgroup.

    Well, I use FF2.
    IE7 is junk in comparison, IMHO.

    Max you're too funny. I'll ask you the same as I did the other guy, if you're
    happy with IE7 then what are doing here other than shilling for Microsoft?
    Read the complaints on the board, many are FORCED not asked to use the
    browser and are having ergonomic issues because they can't move anything
    around. It's not rocket science Max.

    Now it's time to get back to work, I hear Mr. Gates calling.

    Hi Jeff. Nice to know someone notices lil'ole me! :) Although I'm a
    she and not a he, LOL! My guess is that alot of the people around here
    don't like to hear what I have to say most of the time, so they just
    ignore me. It doesn't matter (to them) what else I have to contribute
    to the group. But it's ok, I seem to beg controversy just about
    everywhere I go.

    Sorry Nina,
    I shouldn't have said he, sorry girl.
    Anyhow, controversy,lol, I'm no stranger to people givin grief; don't
    let em bother ya.
    I may be outspoken on certain things(SPP mostly), but all in all I do try to
    When people refuse to see issues and blindly blather; as many in here are
    wont to do; INCLUDING MVP's,
    I just gotta say something. And those guys didn't even bother to acknowledge
    your question.
    Anyway, back to that issue.
    I really don't think there is a way to get IE6 in Vista; but then again,
    I've never tried.
    I do know that in Vista; IE7 is the default broswer;whereas in XP the
    default browser was IE6; and that putting in IE7 was an"upgrade".
    That was able to be removed in XP;which in turn would default back to
    IE6, but in Vista IE7 is the default.
    For what it's worth,
    I didn't ignore ya!! :)

    Much appreciated!

    The reason I'm asking this question is because others have managed to do
    it with 2000 (see link below), so I'm sure there is a way it can be done
    with XP and Vista.

    You'll be moving to Vista... deny it all you want now. You are still going
    to use it.
