    Is there hope that MS is going to fix this program?
    Until then can someone please explain how to uninstall the thing and let me
    return to IE6, I have work to do.

    Very very disappointed that you released something that doesn't function....

  2. Uninstall is simple. Go to Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel,
    select Windows Internet Explorer 7 in the list and click Remove.

    What sort of problem ? Any description ?
    We have been using IE7 from Beta 1 version.
    Final version is behaving excellent. Some of us
    are used to keyboard buttons on IE6. Since
    IE7 is more Mouse oriented, learning the use
    of Mouse makes life easier, but it takes few
    minutes of learning time. Although, loading on
    IE7 multiple pages takes a little time, IE7 running
    on single page is lot faster than any other browser.
    On our working PC, we have Mozilla Firefox 2,
    Opera 9.02 and IE7 running. Guess what,
    we love IE7. (It is like driving on the right side
    or the left side of the road. You have to get
    used to it). Besides, external changes on the
    web pages for IE6 has not been changed for IE7
    yet by quite a large numbers of webs, those
    changes will be done on active web pages soon.

    An example or two would allow several thousand IE7 users to test the
    problem. I don't access any cubic-feet-per-minute or safe-for-work web pages
    myself.

  8. IE7 works well in Vista. I think they'll make it work even better in Vista.
    Driving users to abandon XP in favor of Vista is on the front burner.
    Given that, I see no real hope IE7 will be made much better for XP.

    I tested your link, works just fine, no hang ups. I'm currently using XP and
    IE7, on one system, VISTA on another, both work fine with your link. There
    could a number of possible issues, display driver, amount of ram. I also keep
    Opera and Firefox as possible alternatives.

    I may be wrong, but have you loaded the latest versions of Java
    and Macromedia Shockwave & Macromedia Flash Player?

    (I have just visited the web-site you described. IE7 works fine).

    This site works just fine for me too, but there are other sites where swf
    files or mov files don't. I have to use Firefox on some sites in order to
    get things to work right. For instance on the Russellbrown.com site, click
    on Tips and Techniques, then scroll down to view a tutorial (which is
    quicktime), the status bar shows that it is downloading but then it will say
    done and next to that a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. The
    problem is that "object expected". I have reinstalled quicktime many times
    but no changes. This works fine in Firefox. This is probably my only problem
    at the moment. I guess I should consider myself lucky compared to problems
    others are having. I have updated everything I have but still can't get the
    russell brown movies working.

  14. Thanks for challenging me, Frank. HP PSC was the only glitch for me,
    and I came to accept the interface, but perf drove me back to 6,
    except for the bedroom computer which is a dual core blah blah.

    Will the "experience" be as good in XP as in Vista? Well, we know
    that it is not engineered to be equal - how it works we'll have to see.
    So far, no writhing or whining from Vista IE7, plenty from XP IE7.

    It's slower than 6 on the old box - no difference on the Vista-ready PC.
    It is unlikely that IE7 code will be optimized for old slow computers,
    I think, and there is this immanent great big Vista campaign, for sure.

    I have just visited http://russellbrown.com/tips_tech.html page
    At the end of the page, it talks about :-
    -------------------------------------------
    Advanced Masking Adobe Photoshop 7.0 or greater
    Old stuff that's NEW!
    Put on your propeller hat, because this one is not for beginners.
    If you're interested in creating professional masks, then you have
    come to the right place.

    View QuickTime
    Tutorial; 21 MB
    -----------------------------------------

    Took a few seconds to download 21 Meg file.
    http://av.adobe.com/russellbrown/AdvancedMasking.mov
    Then the above page shows up with tutorial and how to edit
    pictures and change color/bw viewing etc.

    The page works fine on IE7. I had QuickTime 7.1.3 loaded.

    Give me an address of swf file. I like to test that.
    I am still happy with IE7.

    Orville, thanks for trying. When I try that particular movie, the task bar
    shows that it is downloading, but after a period of time, the screen is
    bland and I have the small error notification at the lower left corner. When
    I double click on that, it says "object expected". IE7 works just fine on my
    laptop running the same operating system (XP home SP2). The only difference
    I know about is that the laptop is a newer machine and is also a media
    machine. The SWF files open up fine now so that is another problem down the
    tubes.
    I have updated things until I am exhausted. For the moment, I will just have
    to go to the laptop to check newer things at the russellbrown site. I
    forgot, there is one other difference between my desktop and laptop. When I
    open the page on my laptop, Russell Brown's eyes are rolling around but on
    my desktop, this doesn't happen. Is this a clue as to what the problem might
    be? Maybe some animation code that isn't working on my desktop installation?
    Thanks for replying.

  17. Vista is a much more secure operating system. Some people will, of course,
    turn off UAC because they don't like having to click Continue, but they
    really should leave it on and get used to it. Especially when connected to
    the Internet. However, I don't think I can recommend Vista on any machine
    with less than 1 GB of RAM or less than a 1 GHz processor. I like it,
    though. Once I get software from my satellite ISP that works in Vista it
    will become my main OS.

  18. I guess User Account Control in Vista works like Linux. Fedora prompts
    for root's password when a user wants to do system things. When doing
    system things is the point of booting fedora, I do usually log in as root.
    Since I'm used to Windows, fedora boots for yum update, and little else.

    I have the DVD burnt, but I haven't installed the Vista beta - trepidation.
    The "are you ready for Vista" program couldn't figure out the PC's cheap
    RAID controller (Linux also won't). Maybe the Vista install could. Thanks
    for encouraging me to try installing it. I guess I will and see what happens.

    User66: Can you tell me how you got IE7 & Mozilla Firefox 2 to work on the
    same computer? My Firefox works fine now that IE7 was installed, but I had
    to remove IE7 because I couldn't get it to open. I've tried opening w/o
    add-ons, etc. but nothing seems to work for me. Thanks!

    I have been keeping my PC as clean as I can. It is possible,
    that you have loaded another program, that is causing the
    trouble. I do run a few clean up programs almost every week.
    These are, Ad-Aware, SpyBot-Spy Blocker, Windows Defender,
    AVG Anti-Spyware, besides virus checker AVG Antivirus.
    I was an avid user for Norton from the day Norton started
    till 2004, but it has caused more trouble for me than the
    operating system itself. Make sure you have a two way
    Firewall set up, such as ZoneAlarm or Sygate Personal
    Firewall (it was free, but Norton already bought it. You can
    still get it free outside USA). I think I have said enough.
    Good luck.
