    Microsoft - please get your act together please and fix the bugs that prevent
    installation of ie7. I am having the typical registry errors which are also
    preventing many others from trying the beta. Thanks.

  2. The fault isn't Microsoft's, but anti-spyware/anti-virus.
    Anti-spyware/anti-virus changes some of the registry portions so it can't be
    changed, that's what's causing your problems.

    Sorry you're having install issues,

    I appreciate that response, however firstly I am using a Microsoft
    Antispyware program called Defender. Prior to that, I used Microsolf
    Antispyware. Prior to that I used Yahoo Antispyware. These are all
    well-known programs. Secondy, it is Microsoft's job to work around those
    issues and provide a product that will install on a computer which runs
    Microsoft's operating system (XP). If Microsoft knows that other software is
    changing the registry, then they know what to do to change it back.

    I am having tnothing but problems since attempting to install 7 beta 2. The
    install did not complete and it required a system reboot which further
    corupted my system. I no longer are able to run explorer or outlook express
    or outlook for that matter. I am unable to uninstall 7 beta 2 nad unabel to
    reinstall ie 6 or 7. ALso many other programs that rely on WININET.dll area
    also impacted or are not functioning since I tried to install IE7 beta. I
    wwas running IE6 prior to all this and was basically fine. TO go around
    this problem now, since I have recieved no help from Microsoft TECH support.
    (still waiting for that return call....) I installed firefox and
    thunderbird (mail client) both from Mozilla. ANd they are working fine.

    THanks microsoft for forcing me to see how the competition is better.
