Is Internet Explorer part of Win7. With updates it looks as though I have Version 11 which will not load. It just gives a momentary flash.
Can I uninstall IE and perhaps go to an earlier version?. Firefox is my browser of choice but I don't want to uninstall IE11 if it is going to cause trouble.

IE8 comes with Windows 7, but for sanity of web developers I do not recommended going back that far. ;)

Wonder if your prob is the same as this (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?137160-IE-amp-WLM/page2). Post #13? IE closes 10-15 secs after you try to run it

Do you use registry cleaners?? If your prob is the same as the above, that may have caused what youre seeing

I run ccleaner but not the registry part, I am scared of playing with the registry. LOL.

Thats what happened on the link I posted. I had to login to this PC with teamviewer, to see what the prob was. So I could fix it. Some of the files somehow had become unregistered

Web developers probably won't care, you'll just be annoying yourself when half the websites you want to look at don't work.

Yes and no. In the past, it was pretty much an integral part of Windows and removing it was tricky and easy to break other things...

Nowadays you can turn it off from Windows features, though that is not exactly 'removal' eg: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/2734/uninstall-disable-delete-internet-explorer-8-from-windows-7/ since it can easily be added again with a few clicks...

OIC. Thanks for that information. I guess I will just ignore it and stick with Firefox.

Are you on 64bit or 32bit Windows? That path only applies if you have 64bit Windows. If you are on 32bit then just use Program Files not Program Files (x86)
