Just to let you know that I am still here - and so is my problem with Java! I have been rather too busy at work to spend much time on this this but here is an update.
This might sound stupid but I don't know how to uninstall IE7. When I go to "add or remove programs" IE7 is listed but, unlike for every other program, there is no change or remove button! Is this normal? Without this how can the program be removed?
I have not yet found anyone with an installation disc for the correct version of windows and so this may eventually be my only option. I need to look at this in more detail before I would be brave enough to try it.
SFC no disc, no friends able to help.
Well you will need to do it the harder way and as a registry edit will be required it is essential that you back up your registry before you do anything else. Then in the event of trouble it will be easier to repair your registry. Download ERUNT from here: (http://www.snapfiles.../get/erunt.html) and take a moment to familiarize yourself with the programmer and how to repair your registry with it if it should become necessary. At the same time it would be wise to create a System Restore point, post back here if you need instructions on how to do this.
For the alterations needed to run SFC If you go here (http://www.updatexp....cannow-sfc.html) you will find detailed instructions on the copying of files and the system changes you need to make. When you have followed all the instructions, reboot you machine and try to run SFC again, and please let us know how you go.
Glad to see you back here, but am very angry that MESH are treating you in such a fashion. I know it does not help your cause, but we are now conversed in who not to deal with in the future. As far as waiting on the phone at that price, well that is an unreasonable request at the best of times.l We will attempt to assist you here from the more clever volunteers among us.
To uninstall IE 7.0 use this link
to see if you have success. I do not have IE 7, so have little experience with it, but try that link and post back if you have no success uninstalling. By the way, no question is stupid, we are here to help and give you confidence to proceed, not to think your questions are stupid..
I agree, if you cannot find a friend to borrow the exact same OS CD as you have, entering and touching the registry is not one of my favorite occupations either, but lets see if you can borrow that OS CD first.
Have you uninstalled all Java Runtime showing in your Add and Remove utility? If not please do so and download JavaRa.exe
, run it by following the prompts to see what shows up after you use the options offered.
You inability to watch Youtube videos I think is part and parcel of the problem at hand, so until we prove your OS is clear of corrupt .dll files, and your Java update verified, I think that is our priority at this time.
Another thought just came to mind, please do this and report back what you find
- Control Panel
- Add and Remove and let it populate
- Enable show updates at the top
- In the left pane click Add and Remove Windows Components
- Is there any reference to Internet Explorer showing enabled there?
Is it possible for you to take a screen shot of your Add and Remove utility showing IE 7 with the absence of the Remove button. Here is how.
