    My IE7 Beta uninstaller reference is not there because I accidentally deleted
    it when cleaning up the $ hidden folders from my system, so none of the
    uninstall suggestions work. Can anybody help? I'm at a loss...

  3. Hi Chuck,

    System Restore might bring the files back... have you tried that?

    The first registry key mentioned is not there. I deleted the second one. Any
    other suggestions? Thanks so much for your help so far...

  6. Did you check and make sure Beta 2 Preview is not under the Add\Remove
    programs? Make sure "Show Updates" is checked.

    Yep, tried that. The problem is that the uninstaller is no longer on my
    system so now I can't figure out how to uninstall it manually.

    The 2 reg keys may be a bit different, depends on what version was prior
    installed. Mine were a bit different, just look for the 2 that end in IE7___.

  9. If you want to try it, I zipped and posted the uninstaller from my computer
    on the company web server.

    Bill I have the exact same problem as Chuck. When we deleted the uninstal
    file it show that the program has already been uninstalled in the ADD/Remove
    and asks if you want to just remove it from the list of programs and it also
    deletes the files in the registry.
    So if the uninstall file is missing you can not uninstall via ADD/Remove and
    it does no good with changing the registry files because the first one no
    longer exsist and the second one won't work.

    Ok, maybe I am missing something, I had the older 7.0, then I deleated the
    blue update files under windows, then I tried to install the new 7.0, but I
    had to uninstall the old first, but of course could not, so did the reg
    thing, and then installed the new 7.0 and all worked fine. Now I do have a
    uninstall in add and remove, but have not tried that, just wanted the newest

    i have to say the best option is to just reinstall the latest version from
    microsoft and it will fix all the registry entrys..if you find that ie7 wont
    install then install ie6 again and then upgrade to ie 7 sounds like a lot of
    work but this is the best and safest soulition ...remember after you get your
    ie7 uninstall back and your happy that it works..what most people forget to
    do is clear all system restore points and then create a new one before
    shutting down....

    Thanks so much. I'm downloading it right now and will let you know how it
    works out. Whether it works or not, I really appreciate you going the extra
    mile to help.

    SUCCESS!!! Thank you so much Chris. If other people use this method, when I
    downloaded the zip file and unzipped it, nothing was in the folder so I
    thought it must be hidden. Had to go to an explorer window, tools, folder
    options, show hidden files.

    I really appreciate your efforts to help me out. I hope others will benefit

  17. Hi Chuck,

    Glad to help out, were you able to successfully install the new beta? Also,
    I don't know how long I can keep it up there, I may be able to leave it for a
    while, I don't know. If not, I can always repost in the future at someone's

    I didn't try installing the new beta yet, but I am succesfully back to IE6.
    I'm going to wait until I've restarted Windows XP a few times before I try
    the new beta. Thanks again...

    Chuck, Mar 22, 2006
  19. Okay, good luck!

    Thank you. I didn't need it for myself ( the registry fix got IE7 to show in
    add/remove programs for me so I could uninstall it and then install this
    latest beta) but wanted it for someone at dslreports who had no uninstaller.
    I was gone for awhile. Just got back and saw your link. Went to post over at
    dslr and saw that someone had sent this person the 32MB file! I posted your
    link anyhow in case someone else needs it with your name and that it came
    from this NG so if you take it down they will know to come here and ask.
