    re: "Microsoft Fix it 50778"

    After removing IE9 from Windows 7 64 bit Enterprise and rebooting, I do not see IE8 as an option in the "Features" list.

    Now there is no IE at all! Can't get on the internet on the PC in question.

    Looked for an IE8 download on the microsoft.com web site, but there is no IE8 download for Windows 7! The Vista version of IE8 will not install on Windows 7.

    Help!

    can you tell me how to unlock a Dell that is password protected. I bought one that does not even have to Uniter States in it as a country.

  5. I've tried uninstalling Explorer 9 with the Fix-It For Me tab as well as trying the cmd.exe and pasted commands – neither works.  I've even tried to call Tech Support and got sent to India where I became so frustrated with their lack of knowledge or command of the english language….. where do I go from here?  Perhaps Apple?!?!?!
