Internet Explorer 7 Beta has been covered here before (and, briefly, after). But, now we have a problem.

After I crashed my machine a couple of weeks back, I didn’t reinstall IE 7 immediately. Today, I tried to do so, after tiring of the Internet Explorer 6’s tabless browsing.

However, after the install, and the subsequent reboot, Internet Explorer 7 wouldn’t start. Each time I tried to run it, it came up with the same error, which is available at the bottom of this posting.

There was some initial problem with FolderShare on the reboot, so I thought that might be the cause. I started by uninstalling the programs that I thought might be causing conflict. I removed FolderShare, GoogleDesktop, Google Toolbar, and Web Sign On, which works with Alladin’s eToken, and then I rebooted. No luck. Then, I uninstalled Visual Studio 2003 and rebooted. Still no luck.

Fortunately, you can actually uninstall Internet Explorer 7 Beta by going to Add/Remove programs under the Control Panel and clicking on Show Updates, which is located in the top bar.

I would switch over to Firefox completely, if it weren’t for the functionality of Web Sign On , which is friggin’ brilliant.

Here’s the error log from the event viewer:
