Uninstall Ie8 Tab Missing In Add/remove List


I need to uninstall & reinstall ie8 on my pc running win xp/sp3. But on the add/remove programs list under ie8, the uninstall tab is missing. The reason that i need to uninstall is that ie 8 hangs every so often. It has been suggested to me that my problem might be caused by installing ie8 before installing sp3 after my pc was in for repairs. If this is what is causing the problem, should i uninstall sp3 and see if this allows me to then uninstall ie8? Or is there another fix for this issue?

Ie8 Toolbar / Add-on Cannot Be Removed From List

I am trying to remove the listing of an add-on in ie8 os is xp mce 32 bit. One of my kids installed a toolbar for a game they play but i didn't want it on my comp so, in the add-ons list there are 2 listings for it , both having the same information. I have uninstalled the program, disabled it in the add-ons list and tried right clicking it in the list for more info to click remove but the "remove" button is greyed out. I also removed the registry key associated with it but it is still showing in the list. I also looked for the .dll but it is not present in the system-32 folder. Any suggestions? This is what shows when i click more info for both of the listings.

Missing Program Information In Add / Remove Programs

Ok so i just upgraded my windows vista home basic to windows 7 home premium (on an imac!) And i love it. I do have one problem thought. I installed a few programs like call of duty 1 and limewire. Everything runs fine and much faster than vista but when i go into the add/remove programs list , the programs like call of duty and limewire have a lot of missing information such as their size, publisher while other programs have all their information.

Also, these two programs have weird icons instead of their own icons. I don't mind this but i'd like the add/remove programs to show all of the information on my installed programs. Ny ideas on how to find the missing information? I'm not very used to windows since i use os x more. Ndrew

Power Management Tab Missing

I just reinstalled windows 7 home on my tablet pc, the hp tm2t. Since i switched my hdd to an ssd. However, as i'm setting the tablet pc's multitouch function so that it would be responsive after idle (before my reinstall, i could uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"), i realized the power management tab in device manager isn't there anymore.

The item i'm looking for is under the human interface devices -> usb input device (it's not specified, but this device manages the multitouch for my tablet). I still see the power management tab for my wireless card, biometric devices (fingerprint reader) and some other usb root hubs. Does anyone else have the same problem? Or know a fix?

I've been using a firedtv s for a few years on a xp mce and after a few hacks i got that to work very well. I'm now on a new computer with win7 and have invested in a s2 card from terratec (s7). But when i come to the list (in mce tv-signal setup) where i chose  satellite i have about 60 to chose from but not the one i'm revising signal from. I live in sweden and i'm uing thor on 0. 8°w. Is there a way to add it to the list of satellites in mce or do i have to use terratec's (not as good) software that can find it?

Add To List Of Words To Handwriting Dictionary

Is it possible to add a list of words to the tablet input panel (tip) handwriting recognition dictionary? For example, is there a way to put the words from the dictionary that ms office uses (custom. Dic) into the tip dictionary?

I ask because i'm a student and the tip doesn't recognize a lot of the specialized terms i use and i don't want to have to add them manually one at a time. I believe that the recognition is attempting to "recognize" words that it finds in its dictionary. I know that i can add one word at a time by writing the word, tapping above it, and choosing "add [the word] to the handwriting dictionary" from the drop-down menu.

Does anyone know where this dictionary is located? How can i add a list of words to that dictionary?

Permanently Remove Program From Start Menu Recent List

How to permanently remove a program from start menu recent list? I would like to know how i can prevent a program from appearing in the list of most recently used programs in the start menu under windows 7 (pro).

For instance, "notepad" is in this list, but i only start it by double-clicking text files, never through the start menu. In this manner, 4 of 10 recent menu entries are shortcuts i'll never use and which take away space for other, more valuable shortcuts. I know that i can remove items manually using the right-click-menu ("remove from list"), but i would really prefer a way to make this permanent. Any ideas?

Add And Remove Programs Is Not Working

Suddenly, my 500 gb computer hard drive that had few used space is showing that i have 22 mb left. I can't figure out why. I have noticed that the programs that i have uninstalled in add or remove are still on my hard drive-folders as well as the megabytes they use. I am baffled! Can anyone make a suggestion. I think something is wrong with the windows.

My starry night enthusiast program is taking up 768 mb and windows did not install any of it. The fold er is still there. I had tried ibm lotus, and uninstalled it. It is still there. When i tried to contact microsoft for support, it has expired. That was a shock! It hasn't been out that long! Has anyone else had this problem? Can i just delete the folders since i did the uninstalls?

Internet Explorer 64-bit Missing From All Programs List

How do i restore internet explorer (64 bit ) to the "all programs" list? I dragged internet explorer ( 64 bit) from the "all programs" list to the desktop. Then, by accident i deleted that shortcut which went to the recycle bin which i actually emptied after. When i clicked on the start menu and the "all programs" list again the link to internet explorer (64 bit ) was missing to my dismay. Is there anyway i can get internet explorer ( 64 bit ) to show again on the "all programs" list? Windows 7 home premium

Remove Ie8 64-bit

After a few hours with my 3rd party antivirus software help folks, they finally told me that their software works with win 7 - 64-bit but doesn't work with ie8 - 64-bit. I have ie8 - 64-bit loaded on my pc, along with the 32-bit version. I need to remove (uninstall) the 64-bit version.

If i remove ie8 via control panel | programs & features | turn windows feature on or off, by not selecting it, it's gone after a re-boot. However, when i then turn it back on, both the 32 & 64 bit ie8 appear. I need the ie8 64-bit to not be reinstalled (or uninstall ie8 64 bit ;^)

Anybody have any ideas?

Unable To Uninstall Ie8

I was having browser problems and it was suggested i uninstall ie8 then reinstall. Now i'm really screwed.

During the uninstall this message came up:  the following programs were installed on your computer after ie8:  hotfix for windows xp. I elected to continue the uninstall. Then another message popped up during the ensuing uninstall:  "cannot copy the file; hmmapi.dll. Mui". It asked me to browse for it but was unable to locate so aborted the uninstall.

Oh brother. Ie8 is still installed but it has locked my i-net screen (there is a "locked screen symbol" on the status bar). I am unable to download any programs. And i am unable to uninstall ie8 or overwrite it.

In addition - my navigation menu bar is missing, i can't right click anything, system restore won't restore any date, and and and and.

Ie8 Add-ons Not Showing

I've downloaded a couple add-on's for ie8 (like, flashcat). Supposedly, any downloaded add-on should display in one of the bars above the web page, but this does not happen. In fact, after downloading the add-on and re-opening ie nothing is displayed anywhere.

I looked in help; and, it said i should go: menu > tools > tool bar in the browser. . . Except, that there is nothing under the tools tab in my ie8 that says "tool bar. "  Nada.

I've looked in "manage add-on's" and verified that the add-on is indeed listed there. Yet, it will not display in whatever bar that's supposed to be in the browser. I checked the fora and could find no similar issue.could somebody, please, help me with this?

Yahoo Mail Doesn't Appear In List Of Email Programs In Ie8

Yahoo mail doesn't appear in the list of e-mail programs in internet explorer 8 options although i have installed the latest version of yahoo toolbar. I have an e-mail account on yahoo. I want to use yahoo mail as the default e-mail program so it opens directly when i click on any e-mail link.

I went to this page: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/settings/settings-10.html

It says that i need to install the latest version of yahoo toolbar to do that. I have done that but yahoo mail doesn't appear in the list of e-mail programs in internet explorer options, there are only hotmail and outlook. I have contacted yahoo customer care and they told me that i have to contact microsoft support about this issue, and when i tried to do that, i found there is no support by e-mail, it's only by phone, and i like to use the e-mail one.

Anyone from microsoft support or community member can help me in my issue, which is to make yahoo mail appear in the list of e-mail programs so i can choose it as default email?

Unable To Add Search Providers Ie8

I recently had a mcafee tech change some of my settings (xp 32 bit & ie 8). Now i can't add any search providers using the find more providers option in the upper right corner of the screen. I don't get any error messages. I just don't get a result when i click add to internet explorer on this page: http://www.Ieaddons.com/en/searchproviders. It used to work fine until the tech reset something. I had another mcafee tech try to fix the problem but he wasn't able to - he assures me that mcafee isn't blocking anything.

I like bing but i'd like the option to use google too (without going to their site).

Ie8 Won't Let Me Add New Favorites

I have ie 8 running on vista (w sp2) on a dell xps laptop. Just recently i found that i cannot add new favorites either to the favorites menu or the favorites toolbar. I can drag a link to the desktop and it will stick there, but after dragging one to the favorites toolbar, i can watch while the new link simply disappears. Likewise, when i click "add to favorites" on the menu, all the actions will take place, even to the new favorite appearing on the menu for a second but then it vanishes. There are no error messages when any of this happens. My old favorites are still there on the bar and the menu and work fine.

I have not been able to find anything about this problem elsewhere. I imagine it is a problem with a setting but i can't imagine which one. I have delete a lot of items from my favorites folder thinking it might be a storage problem but that was no help.

Installed Printer Missing From Printer List

Win7 home premium 64-bit. I installed an old zebra eltron printer that i use for shipping labels. Since my hp computer has no parallel ports, i had to use a buslink usb to parallel cable to get the printer installed. I found that the 64-bit vista drivers worked and the printer works as normal.

Now i need to adjust some settings on the printer, yet when i pull up the hardware/printer page, the printer is missing! It's probably hidden behind the ieee1284 controller (that is listed on the hardware page) but the printer itself is not on this page. How do i find this 'missing' printer?

"add Printer" Missing "windows Update" Button

I need to add a driver in win 7 home premium 64 bit for an hp laserjet 5mp. I tried several times from work on a dial up and kept getting knocked off. So i brought it home to try it on dsl. But now after i select lpt1: and go to the next screen, i have no button to click on for "windows update" in order to get the larger list of drivers available from ms. I'm guessing something got corrupted when i was kicked offline so many times?

This procedure worked fine from our hp laptop with win 7 home premium 64 bit. . . And i didn't even have the printers hooked up! So is there a way to restore this "windows update" functionality to the "add printer" process on the desktop win 7 machine? This was a fresh install of windows with current windows updates on a new drive. I really hope i don't have to start over from scratch just to add a printer driver!

Can't see files in he recycle bin from drives other than c:all files deleted from the root drive c: can be seen in the recycle bin. Having multiple drives (local and networks), if you delete a file it goes to the recycle bin, but you can 't see. Steps taken. I can see all of my drives' recycle bin when i change view setting to show hidden files. What i can't do - not sure i should be able to do - is change the attribute settings on the recycle bin's to deselected hide file. Maybe that is what's missing. Any suggestions?

Solution To Alt Tab Not Working

This is not a question but a solution that took me about a month to find.consistently found alt tab to change programs would not work, and when i hovered over the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, the postage stamp image of the application would flash on once then disappear. Sometimes i could just not get an open application to maximize. Usually use my hp laptop at a workstation but when using it in another location noticed the problem had disappeared.

Figured there was something about the workstation. Tried back at the workstation and through a process of trial and error found it was a logitech skype usb speaker phone. It is a fairly old model - maybe 2007 - which i got as a freebee when i purchased a pc. It doesn't seem to like windows 7. Unplugged it and there is no further problem.

Classic Mode Using Alt+tab

I'm running win7 ultimate in the classic mode (the aero mode was just too much visual noise) and for years i've used the alt+tab to switch between applications. Starting with vista the contents of the pop-up alt+tab window sorts and does not retain the positions as it did in xp. Are there any settings that i can change to get the xp non-sorted window. With the darn sorting i find myself searching for the "the" window i want to bring to the foreground. I almost always have several applications running (10-20) and multiple windows within each application thus it is not uncommon that i will have 30-50 windows open when i'm researching a topic and attempting to create a document or presentation on the topic.
