Do Not Load ie7Pro-
« on: May 31, 2007, 06:03:29 AM »
First of all-

all my besktop icons became unusable-no link to anything
a yellow triangle with an ! in it would come and go
click on it right or left, it would disappear
the internet was inaccessable via shortcuts
All shortcuts except 'my computer' and 'my documents' were eliminated

Cleaned it up-
ran my cleanup, registry cleaner and windows scan disk
manually removed all files and registry entries to ie7pro

Icons came back to desktop and are operational like normal

Good thing i loaded it on a computer that is separted from my network

ie7pro is not what it claims, it is a disaster waiting to happen to a computer
fortunately I have some tools to deal with such poor and inexcusably bad programs

nite-monkey,

i was challenged to to try ie7pro
so I did
those are the results

and I do like ie7 for a few things
it's a simple browser actually
growing kind of fond of maxthon lately

And Lanux, yeah, I know about those threads too well.
Funny Microsoft has it in top downloaded add-ons.
How typical.....

Still no real end-user reports on ie7pro that i know of,
except this one.
And I found a thread that told another poster not to upload the new beta to download sites yet.
What that means I don't know nor care.

just for general info, this add-on was hailed as "freebie of the month" by Gizmo in his newsletter (05/24/2007).. if this program is not what it claims to be, then maybe someone should warn him..

Hmm yeah, the pressure is on, wonder why-screw 'em.

Load it now before it get's pulled from the internet for what is and is not, I'd say.
