Hi, I'm having a few annoying problems with IE& on Vista, and I
wondered if there was a way to reinstall the IE7 components.
I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium edition (fully patched) and I
have a number of issues that have existed possibly since the machine
was built - i.e. I'm not sure it ever worked!
The problems include:
1. The Search tool bar doe not work, I can type in it - but
pressing enter, or the search icon does nothing
2. The drop-down list of "back history" does not appear ... the
back button functions fine, but the drop down does not work
3. Most annoying of all - downloads, or new windows that are
invoked via script do not work, there are two different versions of
a) the window will open and do nothing, but you can "stop"
the page and press refresh -- and then it works fine.
b) if the window is a pop-up the URL is not populated, and
there is no way to stop / refresh ... in this case I have found no
work around (other than firefox).
The problem also exists in the "no add-ons" version - but I'm not a
fan of add-ons anyway, so I only run Google toolbar.
Can anyone help?
