This is a fresh version of windows. Worked fine with the IE8 that came with it. This happened when I upgraded to IE9. No way back.

Press the windows key and the pause/break key. Then click System protection in the list on the left. In the window that opens click the System restore button. Once you launch it you can restore your system to a point in time before you installed IE 9. Your available restore points should be dated and have a small description. You can undo a restore and go back to the way it is now if it doesn't work out.

Looking at some of your other threads, other problems, it might be worth your while to start over with a clean install, with good install media. Then make sure you have system restore turned on, and maybe even create restore points manually as you install and update windows.

Hi I intended to do a clean copy of Windows 7. I originally had Vista ultimate 32. I have Windows 7 upgrade as both 32 and 64. I used the 32 bit upgrade. With my current IE9 problem, I thought it would be better to use the 64 bit version of windows 7 as this would be a better system. When I put the windows 7 64 bit upgrade dvd in i get the message
This installation disk is not compatible with your version of windows. ETC. Does this mean that I have to get a 64 bit version of vista and then use my Upgrade 64 bit of windows 7. This seems daft.

Surely I should be able to use the 64 bit windows 7 upgrade. What I did originaly with the Windows 7 32 bit upgrade dvd was to select a complete installation formatting my HDD in the process.

Hi otuatail. It is not possible to do an In place upgrade straight from 32 to 64 bit Windows. You will need to do a clean install.

Here is a tutorial: Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Bear in mind that a clean install WILL wipe your system drive, so remember to take backups

Hi I have managed to install Windows 7 64 bit. Even though these are upgrade dvds, when I tried to do a clean boot with the 32 bit DVD I couldent I had to do it from within wndows Vista. For some strange reason I was able to boot the 64 bit DVD and do a full clean instalation. Can't understand why the 64 bit was a full version and the 32 bit an upgrade. They are part of the same box set.
