Cannot Upgrade To Ie7


I am trying to upgrade our church's computer to ie7 and have tried just about every idea i've read online. Downloading and installing the ie7 upgrade loses my internet connection. I get the "cannot display page" error. I have tried it with no firewall and with all add-ons disabled. I tried installing xp - sp3 upgrade today and lost connection with ie6. As soon as i uninstall ie 7 and xp - sp3 - everything works again. The connection diagnostic tells me three ports are blocked due to the firewall - but it's disabled. Ive written down everything i can find (ip address, gateway, etc. ) And nothing appears to change after the upgrade - i just can't get back to the internet. Has anyone else dealt with this problem?

Installing Ie7 On D: Drive

I have an eee pc with two ssd drives - its a neat little piece of equipment. Drive c is really small (4gb), and mainly contains windows-xp. The d partition is bigger (12gb). Currently internet explorer 7 resides on the c drive. To conserve space i wish to move (or uninstalled-reinstall) internet explorer to the d drive.
 
Does anyone have any idea how to do that?

When i click to open my browser i first receive this error message:

C:\windowssystem32sensapi.dll is either not designed to run on widows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

It's my home computer with 64-bit windows vista and automatic updates. I cannot delete the dll as microsoft won't let me. Can w fix this anytime soon?

Upgrading Win 7, Trying To Get Ie7

I just received a laptop for christmas and i found out that my job doesn't operate on ie 8 so i need to figure out how to install or get ie 7 on my laptop that runs in windows 7. I have the home edition and it seems i need to upgrade to the professional edition to run a virtual office for ie 7. How do i upgrade, will i pay the $199 or can i just pay the difference? I need to figure out the cheapest and easiest way to get ie 7.

Ie7 And Ie8 Graphics Do Not Load

On my logon to the internet each day using the msn homepage, the graphics do not load initially until i refresh the page. It does not happen again until i have closed the homepage for a period of time and come back to it later to log on to the net again - as before everything on the homepage loads except the graphics until i refresh the page? I have just downloaded ie8, but the same problem was occurring last week when i had ie7.

I am using windows vista ultimate 2007 sp1 on a dell optiplex 755, intel core 2 duo with 2 gigs ram and 32 bit os - not a major problem, but it is an annoying.

Ie7 Not Receiving Website Content

Running windows xp, using mozilla firefox as main browser and avr virus protection - no problems here at all. I originally installed ie8 but every time i tried to open would get "data execution prevention" message which would shut me down. Eventually set waiver for ie8 but same result.

Eventually removed ie8 and installed ie7. Now program opens but after typing any site address in address bar, tab appears with site name (eg. "Msn"0 but no content on page. On all occasions (whatever site i try to visit) it seems to be trying to contact "127. 0. 0. 1"

Is there a solution or should i simply forget about ie altogether. Problem is that the reason that i am using avr anti virus is that i need ie to install mcafee anti virus.

Ie7 - Cannot Manage Add-ons

I have a problem concerning ie 7 add-ons. I can't open the tab that customize the ie add-ons, neither through ie -> tools, or control panel -> internet options -> programs. I just doesn't open up when i click it (no error message, nothing).

My internet browsing works fine, with all add-ons activated, the problem is just i can't see the tab to see what's installed and change their status. I'm on a win xp sp3, mcafee av since a year ago (previously norton av). I don't know exactly when the problem started, but when i installed ie 7 i remember clearly it was ok. I remember my laptop became infected with a pen-drive virus, which was solved time ago.could that have affected this feature?

Flash Flicker Or Stutter In Ie7 And 8

When i visit a website using ie with any flash content in it the page loads and the flash window displays the image but the image flickers  noticeably as it updates at a rate of about 5 to 6 a second. Even modest minor motion animations on webpages will flicker. I also experience flickering of the flash content while passing the pointer over an ie page with flash content.
 
I have uninstalled and reinstalled flash. Same problem uninstalled and then upgraded flash to ver. 10 - still the same problem. This problem was present with flash 9. 2. X. X and remains with a new reinstall/upgrade to ver. 10. 0. 42. 34.
 
In ie internet options i have done a full restore in advanced settings and reset internet explorer settings – still the same problem.
 
I previously had ie 7 running and started having this problem after doing some massive upgrades on drivers and software on this system. I was well down this road when i first noticed this problem. A restore was not really an option. After trying to uninstall flash and reinstalling it and doing a repair on ie without any change in the problem i finally upgraded to ie 8. I am still experiencing the same flicker or stutter problem with ie 8. As might be expected any flash content that shows up in the windows live messenger control window also has the same issue.
 
System:
Winxp pro sp 3. 0 32 bit (current on all critical updates)
Msie 8. 0. 6001. 18702 (latest version)
Window live messenger  2009 (build 14. 0. 8089. 726)
Flash player 10. 0. 42. 34  (latest version - non-beta)
Ati radeon 9200 – running ati catalyst v 1. 2. 2314. 20337 (latest version)
 
There is a different install of the flash plug-in/player for ie than the one firefox etc use. Both are separately installed while running the respective browsers and they seem to recognize the appropriate install.
 
When running any of the following browsers i do not have the ie problem.
 
Firefox 3. 5. 7
Safari 4. 0. 4
Opera 10. 1 (smoothest of all)
Chrome 4. 0. 249. 89 (38071)
 
When running ie or firefox, etc, i can visit http://www.Adobe.com/software/flash/about/ which does a installed flash status and version detection.
 
*All* browsers report:
"You have version 10, 0, 42, 34 installed"
  
Because of the nature of my work using ie is a necessary evil otherwise i would simply go to one of the other browsers which have already demonstrated themselves to be trouble free.
  
I have spent the last several days searching the web for solutions and have yet to find one that solves the problem. I have the most current video display adapter drivers and have tried different display resolutions and refresh rates without any success. The fact that i don't have any problems in firefox, safari , etc and they all use a common (with the exception of ie which has its own) flash plugin/player leads me to believe that the problem lies with the configuration of ie.

Ie7 Internet Options Will Not Open

I want to upgrade to ie8 but each time it tells me that the install has brought forward an error from ie7. My ie7 will not open internet options, thus i cannot "easily" disable add-ons, etc. I have gone so far as to completely re-installing xp and sp3, re-installed ie7 (or ie8) but continue to have the same problem when i try to open ie7 internet options; the sub-screen temporarily flashes and closes (without any error message).

I have a laptop on the same home lan running vista and ie7 but i don't want to upgrade it to ie8 until my desktop will successfully install it. Most of the on-line fixes keep pointing me to ie8 pages. I could sure use a simple fix that does not entail modifying the registry.

Not Able To Print Directly From Ie7 Or Ie8

Having problems getting computers to print directly from the internet. 4 computers on a network (total of 5 workstations and 1 server). Mix of ie 7 and 8. When trying to print directly from internet in ie. The browser page shows an error and refreshes without printing. When using firefox and trying to print directly from internet, the browser is shut down and has to be restarted. Have tried running with no add-ins. Same problem. Have tried to run "sfc /scannow" no change.

I am starting to think there may be a corrupted system file somewhere. I don't know if it is affecting it or not, but also avg free anti virus is running on these computers. All are running windows xp home with service pack 3. The computers are all relatively new. Approx 6-9 months old. Any answers?

Ie7 Closes When Clicking A List Box

Ie 7 closes when a specific list box on a page is clicked. This does not happen for any other list box and only happens on certain machines. The shop runs xp pro sp2 and uses ie 7 across the board. The same users can log onto a different machine and click the same list box (or any list box for that matter) and the problem does not persist on that machine. Security settings have been set to medium-low on the machines with the issue so this doesn't seem to be the issue. Is there a setting or other ap that could be causing this issue for these three machines?

Ie7 Not Handling Excel Files Properly

With ie7 i am at a website where i can export an excel document. I had 2000 installed and didn't have this problem. I now have office 2007 installed and have an issue where it will give me a prompt stating "the file you are trying to open is in a different format than specified. " If i hit yes it will then give me a user login page as though i am just about to login to the website. However, if i hit no, it will prompt the same message again but with a different file name. If i hit yes to that it works fine.

If i try this through firefox, however, i don't have a problem at all which leads me to believe it's an issue with ie. I tried the registry hack to suppress the error message and when i do it'll simply open up an instance of excel with the user/pass dialog boxes asking me to login.

Strange Sound When Ie7 Loads New Url

There is a strange sound intermittently being broadcast from ie7, it usually occurs when i type a new url into the window, but sometimes the noise occurs when the window is active. I tried a number of antivirus programs and everything is negative. I changed the control panel sound from blank to windows default. The sound still occurs as before, it sounds like a kazoo blast. I have a screen capture with audio, you can here the sound at http://www.Youtube.com/watch?V=jcvyowsqnta

Can you tell me what sound file format internet explorer uses for it's various prompts? (Wav, mp2, wma ) and which default directory path?

Ie7 Refuses To Open - Net Framework Issue

Via email a ms tech support advised me last week to uninstalled all .net framework components using win installer clean-up download which i did. Then download the .net framework packages. None of the downloads will install. Some instructions i've used seem to require ie for downloads but my ie is inoperable right now. Ie will flash for a brief instant then go hidden.

This self-help via ms links odyssey began when i tried to install update .net framework sp1 and .net fw 3. 5 family update v 2. 0-3. 5(kb951847)x86 and it always fails to install. 3 days ago i was told in an email that an xp support professional would contact me w/i 72 hrs. That has not happened. My whole system is a mess. How do i unravel this mess and get back to where i was? Also, system restore will not restore to an earlier date.

Ie7 Blank Pop Ups When Opening A File

I am a tech services employee, and i have a very interesting situation with one of our users here. Originally, the problem was that when the user would go to download a file from an internet site (usually, it was an office document), ie would freeze and crash on him. We decided to upgrade him to version 7 of ie (ie 8 at this time is not approved for installation on our corporate pcs because they are not compatible with some of our web applications).

The installation was successful, and the user is able to download and open the documents from the internet, however, when he does, and extra blank window appears and does not automatically go away. It's more of an inconvenience at this point, but i was wondering if this issue can be fixed?

Ie6 / Ie7 Compatibility Issue With Xml Files

I have a strange issue going on. I have inherited some code from a previous programmer, and he builds an xml file and pushes that to ie for printing. It's been fine in ie6, but now that we're rolling out ie7 to our workstations, it no longer works. It seems to be in an endless loop, and it will display some of the report, then that disappears, and something else will pop up later, and this just goes on until i kill ie via task manager.

The really odd thing is that in testing, if i stick the file on the web server and point ie7 at it, it works properly, but if i double-click the html page or point ie7 to it on the network drive, it locks up. Ny ideas what i'm missing here?The file in question is at http://www.co. Tillamook. Or. Us/gov/ois/testing/genericreceipt.htm

Upgrade As Clean Install Using Upgrade Media Using One Hard Drive

I need help with planning my upgrade to windows 7 from windows xp pro. Can i do this upgrade as a clean install using upgrade media if i've only got one hard drive? I'm currently running 32-bit windows xp professional and want to upgrade to 64-bit windows 7 professional.

My laptop only has one hard drive on it, so installing "fresh" to a separate hd isn't possible. Since i already back up all my data to an external hd, i'd like to just format the internal hd and install windows 7 onto that. Will that be possible though using upgrade media? How does it verify my existing xp pro license?

How To Upgrade Hard Drive At Same Time I Upgrade To Win 7?

How should i upgrade my hard drive at the same time i upgrade to windows 7? I plan to upgrade my laptop from win xp pro to win 7 pro and want to at the same time upgrade my hard drive. I don't know what i should do to ensure that the win 7 install program recognizes the prior win xp installation.
Would it work to put the old (win xp) drive in an external enclosure connected via usb? Alternatively, what would i need to copy from the old hard drive to the new in order to have the win 7 install recognizes win xp?

Can I Upgrade?

i bought a second hand computer from ebay in july, which has windows 7 ultimate. Being a know nothing non computer type, i didn't realize that windows 7 had not even been released yet.

I received notification from microsoft 2 weeks ago that i was in fact running a trial version and needed to buy the proper release. I managed to get in touch with the ebay seller and he said he still had the computers original os software, xp, which i can have if i want.

I like w7 and want to keep running it, i'm not bothered about ultimate, the basic home will do me, but i'm not 100% clear on what my options are though.

I currently have:

Windows 7
Evaluation copy. Build 7100

Ideally i would like to go with the cheapest option which is an upgrade to home-is this possible?

I have been told i need to reinstall original os (xp) to qualify for an upgrade-is this true?

I am in the uk by the way.

What To Upgrade?

I installed the rc and have used it with great joy until i had a conflict between outlook and 7.

After two hours of microsoft teck having control of my computer they sent me a link whereby i down loaded a clean full copy of 7. Old install went over vista. So i took everything of the computer and reloaded everything and i mean everything. Since then till now been great.

Now with the computer turning off i am in dire straights. Cant back up but more importantly i do not know what version i am supposed to purchase as i have been told the upgrade will not work and the full version loaded by the teck to sort out a flaw in the system will cost me $400 plus. Screaming here as i do not know what product i need to get. I have been waiting on microsoft to get back to me , 12 days now. I'm in trouble as i can't go back to vista or xp for that matter without redoing everything all over again; 1-2 days work.

Upgrade On New Hd

I have an inspiron 1720 and am doing a switch of drives. I have windows vista installed on my primary hd and have bought windows 7 upgrade. I want to make my current hd the secondary drive and install a new bare drive as my primary drive.

Can i install the new bare drive as the primary drive, do a complete install of windows 7 using the upgrade version and then format the old drive to be the secondary drive? Or do i have to upgrade my old primary drive first with windows 7 upgrade and then switch it to be the secondary drive and then install windows 7 upgrade on the new primary drive?
