My mate has installed Windows 7 (beta) and now he can't access his ISP usage meter.

Can someone with IE8 try it for him and see if their IE can open it, I have Windows 7 beta also but am away from home at the moment.

Here' the page,


See if you can open the "my usage" tab

Everytime he trys to access it it crashes IE8

Here's a direct link to the page, I don't know if he can open it from this I have just emailed him.

Does anyone have any ideas he could try to fix this.

Thanks guys

Read the links under it

There are versions for Vista, which will prob work with Win 7

Doesn't work for 7 speedy.

"Also, don't try installing this version if you're running Windows 7—you'll just get a message that says "Internet Explorer 8 is not supported on this operating system." This makes sense, because although IE8 will be the browser that comes with Windows 7, the RC1 installers are for Vista (in both 32- and 64-bit flavors) and XP."

Hi, my name’s Feran and I’m working with the Internet Explorer Outreach Team to provide assistance and help answer questions people might have about Internet Explorer.

I just wanted to clarify that at this time IE8 RC1 is not compatible with Windows 7, so that is why Radium has been unable to download it. Windows 7 users will get an updated IE8 with the next update of Windows 7.
Currently IE8 RC1 can be downloaded using Vista, XP, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003.

I hope this helps,
