The question here is whether or not you can install the release version of
IE7 over a beta of IE7.



yes you can - the final release of IE7 uninstalls any existing beta as part
of its install process.

What is absurd is the obnoxious amount of crossposting that you started.

I really, really, really, really, really, really tried hard not to
criticize microsoft, becuase I know some of you worship Bill Gates as
your God, but what just happened is beyond absurd. The world is in
heap big trouble with Microsoft at the helm of the software industry.

A little while ago, I got a notice that an update was ready. I didn't
know why I received it, becuase my system was set to receive Automatic
updates, and the caption on the notification said "Automatic Update".
First what is automatic about an update that asks me? Someone out to
knock Bill Gates on the head and ask, "Is anyone in there?". But that
isn't the problem, just a prelude. I'm really the idiote for saying
yes to the update. It was an Internet Exporer v7 update, or so it
said. I said yes, then it asked me if I accept the license, and of
course I did. The next thing I saw was that Internet Explorer V7 was
being installed ( I had it installed over a month ago). Then it said
it was uninstalling a previous version and I thought, Uh Oh!!!!!! And
rightfully so. I was asked to restart my computer and naturally I
couldn't ignor that request, becuase it kept coming back and bugging
me. So I said yes, and nothing happened. So I tried to restart and
it wouldn't. Finally after a several attempts I opened the task
manager and dumped a bunch of programs then was able to restart.
After I restated, I opened up IE and went to open a new tab and there
weren't any. HUH, I asked myself? No tabs? I like tabs, what
happened? This is what happened, the update uninstalled version 7 and
installed version 6.

Do I need to say any more? I can't, becuase there is no description
suitable to describe this, except, HUH!!!!!

I think Microsoft need some updating of personnel, starting with Bill
Gates and continuing until the last programmer is booted. Keep the
cleaning crew and the cafeteria staff.

Did you notice that the groups you posted to (at least most) have NOTHING to
do with the topic you are raging on about? This makes you a TROLL. I am not
saying this because I worship Bill Gates as a god, but because in your "I
was robbed" speech, you stepped over the line as well. Makes it rather hard
to sit and take you seriously.

For the record, I think the IE 7 forced upgrade is unwise, perhaps even
stupid. It sounds like you had a bad upgrade. Download the bits and install
again. On the one machine that I have seen with a bad update, it worked fine
after that.

Next, if you decide to follow up, do this.

1. Write your rant
2. Erase it. You will now have calmed down
3. State your point in an intelligent and calm manner

If you follow this three step plan (to avoid having to go through a 12 step
plan :P), you will find that things are much nicer.

Now, to your issue: Did you notice any other symptoms of armeggedon other
than no tabs? :-)

might cause problems :-)


Case in point. I installed the released IE7 on top of IE7 RC1 on two
different machines. HelpAbout shows version 7.0.5730.11 on one and
7.0.5730.11CO on the other. I have no idea why they're different.

I would ignore any names beginning with L. That individual is a
confirmed plonker.

What's a beta? I wasn't informed that version 7 is a beta. I was available
on the Microsoft site as the new version. No beta involved.

let's get this in perspective:

1) You installed a BETA product
2) You complain when you are using your computer and it alerts you that
it's about to install updates while you are using your computer
3) The update is for a BETA product
4) Your BETA test machine doesn't perform properly

What part of BETA don't you understand - if you are not prepared to deal
with problems then don't run BETA software.

If you are prepared to deal with problems associated with BETA software
you should have posts your statements as "I've tried to install IE7 BETA
update and I'm having problems".

Your first paragraph makes you appear to be trolling.
