An interesting by-product of an accidental IE7 full install
For anyone that has installed the tredsoft stand-alone version of IE7 (http://tredosoft.com/IE7_standalone), you'll notice that its function is somewhat limited.
While the tredsoft version certainly works well enough to Q&A a page/site, it appears that you can gain (at least nearly) full-function from the stand-alone of IE7:
1. install the stand-alone as above
2. upgrade your existing IE to IE7 (yes, just like Microsoft wants us all to do)
3. install the IE7 blocker toolkit (from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en)
4. uninstall IE7 (Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Windows Internet Explorer)
5. open IE
This should open your original version of IE, the one you started with in step 1; it should function just as it did prior to all this stuff.
Now open your IE7 stand-alone; you should (at least nearly) a full functioning version!
I was pleasantly surprised...
Not sure if this will work with the other versions of IE stand-alones (haven't tried, only need IE6 and IE7), but if some one does try, please let others know!
