    Installing Internet Explorer Beta 1

    I have been using IE Internet Explorer Beta under Vista Home premium
    without incident. It did not auto-update to beta 1. I downloaded beta
    1 and tried to install it. It refused, saying I must install beta
    first. Yet it did not appear any where in the control panel list as
    MS docs said it should . So I thought perhaps I could just delete the
    files. That did not work since the files are protected even to the
    administrator. At that point the old IE stopped working. It would come
    up for a second and disappear.
    Any ideas on what to do next?

    How about system restore to before you tried to install beta 1. Uninstall
    beta then reinstall beta and see what happens.
