    Default want to uninstall IE 7

    i just got IE 7 and i'm not happy about the thing on the top that keeps spinning around whenever i go to a new page,

    what am i an idiot ? i need to see that all the time over and over again or i won't know i'm downloading a webpage ?

    don't like that type of stuff, find it demeaning, i know it's the trend, but flashes on my screen annoy me, distract me, much of the time these flashes are meant to distract,

    does anybody know if there is a way to turn the circling thing off ?

    If you want to uninstall IE7, open Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs, check the box that says Show Updates. You will then see IE7 in the list. Select it and click Remove, this will revert your computer back to IE6. HTH

    I have IE7 installed and I cannot see any spinning anything. Maybe it is some added tool bar that is doing it.

    it's a clock wise spinning in the tab label, for the tabbed browsing,

    this happens when you are waiting for a page to load, maybe if you are on high speed, it happens so fast that you don't notice it,

    Hi Changin'

    What kind of connection do you have? I have Cable and the evnt you are describing only lasts for a split second then goes away.
