    IE 7 has also stopped my Windows Uninstaller Worki (IE7)

    After installing IE7 on my IBM thinkpad, I find that I can NO longer uninstall many of my installed programs from either control panel or from the uninstall exe of an individidual program in the respective programs directory. In control panel I am missing the uninstall button under most programs. And for other program if I try to run the uninstall that each program gives me get something like this screen or no screen.
    If I revert back to IE6 and not certain that I can at this point ie get back IE6 some how, will this solve the problem or is there some other sln.

    Re: IE 7 has also stopped my Windows Uninstaller W

    By some chance, are you not logged on as Administrator on your machine? I realise that you may well be logged on with Administrator privileges (as a member of the Administrators group) - but is your logon name "Administrator"? If not, does the position change if you log on as "Administrator"?

    This is admittedly a longshot, but it reminds me of one of the problems I had when running one of the early Windows Vista betas.

    To rephrase the question/suggestion:

    when you log on under the name "Administrator", do you still have the same problems with IE7?

    Take a look at this site for instructions about showing the Administrator account on the Welcome screen.

    Edited by HansV to reduce HUGE screenshot in size. Please don't post pictures larger than 640x480 pixels. Thank you!

    I think I maybe. But these are the only 2 accounts that show. I assume I am the administrator. Or is there another way of logging on?
