Internet Explorer
 
Hi,
My internet explorer has been acting up lately. Whenever i run IE, it starts with add-ons disabled and i don't know how to enable them. It wont even let my click on manage add-ons in tools. Ive been using IE 7 beta for a while and it just happened out of nowhere. I also use Mozilla, and it's way better, but some sites i go to require IE. Hope im in the right section. Thanks in advance.

Well,

As for the add-ons, I'm not sure as I havent used IE for ages.

But with how you need IE to use some sites (Winodws Update being one) and using Mozilla. You could download an IE tab plug-in which will allow you to view IE dependent sites through Mozilla.

from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/

You cant get rid of IE. Its intigrated with the system.

I suppose actually you can.


Boot into safe mode, and you can delete the folder in the porgram files. I dont reccomend you do that tho.

Yeah, but you can get rid of IE 7 and go back to IE 6 or below.

No, but you can remove the Internet Explorer v7 and downgrade it to v6. I did that when I was getting an error every time I closed IE7. ;)

Edit: For an alternative to Internet Explorer, try http://www.avantbrowser.com . It works on all IE sites, but has tabbed browsing and ad blocking and many more features. :)
