    I've been running IE7 Beta 1 for a couple of months. Just uninstalled (from
    Add/Remove Programs, under Windows Updates) - the uninstall worked fine and I
    rebooted. When I try to install Beta 2 I get a dialog:

    Internet Explorer 7 is already installed on this computer. Please use 'Add
    or Remove Programs in the Control Panel' to uninstall it. It appears under
    'Windows XP - Software Updates' when 'Show Updates' is checked.

    IE7 is no longer listed in Add/Remove Programs.

    What should I try next?

    I found a way to install Beta2 over Beta1. I could not uninstall B1 before.
    I noticed that B2_Install checks the Version of iexplorer.exe. So using
    Reshack I
    changed it to 6.50 and also in DLLCache.
    This enabled me to install B2 over B1.

    Unfortunately I don't have an iexplore.exe anymore! The IE7 Beta 1 uninstall
    seems to have *mostly* worked - but it's obviously left something lying
    around, probably in the registry, that's being checked by the B2 Preview
    installer. Seems a number of folks are having the same or similar issues.

    I'm left with a machine without a browser so I'm going to have to re-install
    unless someone has a work-around?

    Incidentally, I'm not considering running Firefox (which I've tried) or
    Opera or anything else before anyone helpfully suggest such a course of

    Thanks in advance for any additional help!
