I can't stand IE 8. Way to many compatiblity issues with the websites i go to. I really liked IE 7 in Vista, but this IE 8 just plain sucks to put it mildly
I'm a gamer, and i like to listen to music while i game. With IE 8 i can't do that, i use AOL Radio and every time i try to open a station with IE 8 i get that annoying popup IE has stopped working, windows is searching for solution (like that every works
). And there is no compatiblity option for that site.
Did you unintall IE8 first before trying to install IE7?
Unlike prior Windows OS IE8 is NOT part of the OS & can now be removed!
To do this go to Control Panel, Then Uninstall a Program, then click on the side Turn Windows Features on or off, then uncheck the box next to IE8!
Then follow the Windows instructions.
I'm not positive but I think you'll have to reboot after this.
Then after that use Vista Compatibility mode to install IE7. (Rightclick the installation package, then properties, then Compatibility)
Hope that helps & it works for ya...
