IE7 beta 2 used to randomly crash on me, no event viewer entries, nada zip.

I didn't try beta 3, nor did I ever try to uninstall IE7, so I can't confirm the problem. Did you get everything fixed up?

INternet Explorer itself if an integral part of WinXP. IE cannot be removed from XP...period.

 

The problem you had is easily remedied using the repair option form install.

 

 

BETA3 works fine for me. FIxed all the issues I had with beta2.

I believe creating a system restore point, before installing any beta software, is the wise thing to do.

I have uninstalled IE7 beta 2 probably three times and now running IE7 Beta 3 without any issues at all. Kinda like it really.

Is the IE 7 any good?

Im someone who does a fresh install of XP every other day ...lol

After I made an unattended setup it takes me 11 minutes to get back to desktop which is a cup of coffee and a smoke...:)

If configured properly, XP should automatically create a restore point before the installation of an msi.

IE7 beta is better than Firefox 1.5, but not better than Firefox beta 2.0, IMO

 

 

Theres a FireFox Beta 2.0 !... Man I am so behind the times. Gonna go check that out Thanks RF
