    Hi Michael:

    IE 7 is part of the Vista operating system so it can't be uninstalled.

    How about asking a specific question? We'd like to help but we need more
    information about your problem than "its very buggy".

    Thank you for your provost response, I assure you I don’t want to be
    negative, and would love to do anything to improve the IE, as I believe in
    community and learning curve to improve the efficiency of any product,
    especially if we are considering great products similar to Microsoft
    However I have tested and experienced IE7 on both Windows XP professional
    with SP2 and Vista Home Premium, and I assure you that there is a huge
    difference between them, below are highlights for some of the problems I’m
    facing, and I’m not an expert to manage to resolve the source of the problem.
    1. Continuous freezing for IE7 almost every time I use it, I have a freeze
    screen, that request me to restart the program, what makes me lost he last
    pages I was previewing, and here I would like recommending adding a new
    restore feature that enable users to go back to the pages been previewing
    when the problem happen.
    2. Failure in running Java: even that I installed java perfectly, ver. Java
    Plug-in 1.6.0_01, I still receive many different errors whenever I’m running
    a dynamic flash area “Such chat rooms†here is an example of a flash program
    failure :

    Security Exception unknown protocol: socket

    This problem does not exist on other web browsers , or with Windows XP with

    3. Losing the last save directory for (Multimedia): this is really a very
    disturbing issue not available in the previous version, were in the previous
    IE6 you could have start multiple IE and each one can save files in specific
    directory, for example I can run Internet Explorer twice, the first one I can
    save images in my documents and the other Internet explorer window can save
    images in another location, and each child window created from for instance
    the first Internet explorer will save by default files in the assigned
    The problem in the current IE7 that it doesn’t have this feature, and it
    loses the directory location every time you try to save a file, and with
    every child window you have to brows for the same directory each time you
    save a document, “Imagine how much time you lose if you are trying to save as
    100 document or imageâ€â€¦
    This problem is not available in other popular web browsers and it wasn’t
    available in IE6.

    I hope that the above error list is sufficient to inform you how much I’m
    facing problems running IE7 on Vista.
