    I get the MSFEEDS.DLL error.

    I had been happily running the Beta 7 version when due to an unrelated
    problem I reloaded XP. At this point I lost Explorer in all its versions.
    If I try to load IE7 I get a message to say I already have a later
    version. If I try to load IE7 I get a message to say it is already
    installed. I cannot see either in the Add/Remove section of Control Panel.
    In the meantime I am using Firefox without problems.
    I have tried the registry changes to the TIF /TIFF Permissions.


    I have just tried to install IE6 via "Add /Remove windows Components" and I
    now get the message "ieexplore.exe Entry Point Not Found"
    .....................................internetgetsecurityinfoByURLW could not
    be located in the dynamic link library WININET.dll"

    Sorry about the blank post before. I have a similar problem wasting a day
    with no luck so far. I Installed IE7 months ago on Toshiba Laptop. It was
    working nicely and had no major problems except my online banking site would
    not work and another web site that I need would not work with IE7. Because
    of those not two sites not working I decided to uninstall and go back to
    IE6. Followed the directions as recommended in this group. Looked like
    all went well. No such luck. Its mess right now. IE6 gets a "module not
    found" error. Firefox works and I can search within google sometimes.
    Favorits do not work. Other programs like Roboform and QB 2005 messed up.
    Tried to reinstall IE7 and it would not let me. Cannot reinstal IE6. I'm
    stuck in the middle with no place to go. Any ideas short of reformating?

    thanks

    Scott

    Thanks PABear.

    It looks as though I am stuck with Firefox then. Not sure what is needed to
    Format. Can you point me to a good link?
    Do you think that when IE7 full version is released I will get another
    chance to install IE7 - or have I rendered my PC incapable of any IE
    changes?

    No, as you cannot uninstall IE7 Beta2, you will not be able to install the
    final release of IE7 nor is there any other way of going back to IE6 SP1
    now. In essence, you're in "version hell".

    You will need your WinXP CD to reinstall Windows. If WinXP came
    preinstalled on the machine and no CDs were supplied with it, contact the
    machine manufacturer's tech support website for instructions on returning
    the machine to its OOBE (like it was when you received it) state using the
    hidden partition.

    Good luck![/QUOTE]

    I have XP with SP2 (2002 version). Having read the site about clean install,
    I think I will put up with Firefox - which seems as good as IE7.
    Do you think I will hit any snags in the future?
    In view of the fact that a number of others seem to have experienced a
    similar problem, do you think there might ever be a simpler fix?
    Will a professional PC Clinic place be a sensible choice for me to get it
    fixed or should I wait until being in "Version Hell" starts to make itself
    felt.
    Thanks for your help

    snipped
    Can I stop the nag message that says MSFeeds.dll something or other - from
    appearing every time I boot up (and at other times)
