    Have you tried to install IE6 over the top of it?

    Hi, I found this through Google How to remove IE7 - REW Thomas's Blog - REW Blogs Real Estate Blogs looks its just what you need.. :) Bugger! sorry I should have read it properly first.. Back to the drawing board

    I have been checking through some sites and it does seem doubtfull if indeed it can un-installed. Apparently its quite an integral part of Vista. I did find this page though which could be worth reading and it does actually give you instructions on how to remove it.
    Release Notes for Internet Explorer 7

    It goes on to say that you have to type this in your 'Run' box and it will un-install..
    %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe I did try it but with not much luck, maybe more reading is required. Hope this helps and good luck.
     
  5. download the internet explo 6 from any web site and install it into your computer it will automatically remove the ie7

    Instead of trying to use IE6, why not see if a third-party browser such as Opera or Firefox does the trick? :)
