IE9 won't start; doesn't appear in control panel/programs to uninstall
Running Win 7 Home 32bit
I believe the installation is corrupt. I tried reinstalling but the error was that I had a newer version installed .
Is there a way to thoroughly remove IE?
Any tips appreciated

Kevin

Hello Kevin,

If you like, you could do a system restore using a restore point dated when IE9 was working properly to hopefully fix this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You're most welcome.

It wouldn't hurt to also do a full scan of your system with Malwarebytes AntiMalware Free just to help make sure that your system is clean.

Great tip
I did and I'm OK
Just prior to IE9 not starting I had several lockups which required a power off reboot
I bet that scrambled some of the IE files
thx
