    I must have deleted my uninstall file for IE 7 beta 2. Now I can't uninstall
    or install a newer version of IE 7. There must be a registry change that
    will fool IE 7 into either thinking it is not installed or just overlay the
    new version of IE 7. I just want to install the new IE 7. It can't be this
    hard. ;-)

    Courtesy of MVP Sandi Hardemeir:

    Some software (for example CCleaner) deletes uninstaller directories such as
    $NtUninstallie7bet2$ (or $NtUninstallie7bet2p$, for IE7 Beta2 Preview). If
    the $NtUninstallie7bet2$ folder is empty, or has been deleted completely,
    whether by third party software or manually to preserve disk space, you will
    *not* be able to remove the Beta 2 Preview via Add/Remove Programs or the
    commandline. If running System Restore does not resolve the situation for
    you, then your only choice is to stay with the Preview, or format your PC
    and install Windows anew. You will not be able to install any future builds
    of IE7 while Beta 2 Preview is installed, nor will you be able to run a
    Repair Install of XP.

    Hey, PA Bear,
    Me again (Krueger). I went to
    http://dundats.mvps.org/Internet/InternetExplr/IE_tools.htm] and installed
    INET Tools. Unfortunately when I run it (re-installed, ran from severa
    locations, etc.) I get the error message:
    Line 0 (file "C:\Program Files\IE7 Tools\INET_Tools.exe")
    RunWait (Chr (34) & @ScriptDir & "\7za.exe' &@ScriptDir & FixUninstall.zip...
    Unable to execute
    File name, Directory, or Volume label syntax is incorrect.

    I am not that savvy to understand the error message. Sorry to lean on you,
    but do you have any further suggestions?
    Many thanks again...
    Terry
