How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if Internet Explorer 7 is installed

SUMMARY

Before you perform a repair installation of Microsoft Windows XP, you must uninstall Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 from the Windows XP-based computer. If you perform a repair installation of Windows XP when Internet Explorer 7 is still installed, Internet Explorer will not work after the repair is completed.

To resolve this issue, uninstall Internet Explorer 7 from the computer, and then install Internet Explorer 6. After Windows XP is repaired, you can reinstall Internet Explorer 7

Thanks, Charlie.  I'm glad I read this for future reference.  I was about to do a Win XP repair last week before I eventually found a better solution to my problem.

The result will be an exact reversal of the conditions existing before The Civil Rights Act. And the hardest hit will be the children in whose name the left always claims to act. Well done Obama". - Pendark

IE7 problems

I had problems with trying to install the dsl disk from sbc because it would only install if you had IE6 all the cds they send out only works with IE6 and they are aware of it. I had to call them 1-800 to get a service rep to walk me through it. He said they had thousands of cds out in install packages in warehouses. With a little patience every thing went well.

Cool to know.  However, after IE7 got installed on my computer it lasted all of two days.  Now I'm a happy firefox user.
