    Reinstalling Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview
    If you want to reinstall Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview (or install a new version) you must first remove the existing Internet Explorer 7 version. You cannot install Internet Explorer 7 over itself.

    Uninstalling Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview

    To uninstall Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview and return to Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP

    Click “Start,” and then click “Control Panel.”
    Click “Add or Remove Programs.”
    Check “Show Updates” at the top of the dialog box.
    Scroll down the list to “Windows XP – Software Updates,” select “Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2Preview,” and then click "Change/Remove."
    If "Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview" does not exist,
    run %windir%\$NtUninstallie7bet2p$\spuninst\spuninst.exe
    You need to have "view hidden folders" enabled.

    Hey Rev,I am always interested in the new beta's especially ones like this one which i think is a much needed upgrade.I just wanted to ask how complete this beta is.Is it for the most part fully operational enough to use it for browsing without issues?Or still largely incomplete?Thanks

    Thanks Rev,after reading that i think i will just wait a bit longer for the next release.Seems this one still has alot of things that arent quite working yet.I will be glad when it's finally complete.I've used IE forever and have tried alternates like FF,ect but i for some reason still prefer IE lol.Either way still interesting to see what will be in this new release.Just hope they dont take until vista comes out to release a final.

    I installed it and I hate how they jumbled all the browser buttons around. Restored back to an older hard drive image a few minutes after using it.
