Help! I tried to roll back to IE10 and I lost Internet Explorer completely. After an hour of screwing

around I was able to use google chrome to get 11 back in. It works fine everywhere except here.

I don't want to restore my entire operating system. I just did that 2 months ago and ended up with 11.

Now what? When I try to reinstall 10 my computer says it is already installed, yet control panel never finds it.

IE11 is IE10 with some add on modifications.

 

Go to Control Panel, Find Programs and Features,

Then click on View Installed updates and give it a couple of minutes to find them all,

Find the Windows Internet Explorer 11 Update ,

Click on it and Uninstall it.

IE10 will come back automatically.

Sounds like you missed the step to click on "View installed updates" ??

If not I do not know what else to tell you.

That was it. I have uninstalled lots of programs, but never been in that area. Always though of

internet explorer as a program. And used to tabs these days. I am a 10. IE10. lol

 

Last night I google searched over and over and couldn't find a how to remove IE11. Everything was

instructions for windows 8. Now that stuff is a nightmare. I have one sitting in a box until this breaks.

 

Go ahead and delete these posts that don't pertain to nascar.

Glad you got it fixed. It is a program but going from IE8 ?  to 9, 10 and now 11 are updates.

 

Boo Hoo ! I just looked at the Phoenix weather forecast and it is 100% rain for Friday and 90% for Saturday. There goes the practice and possible Nationwide race.

 

Interesting: TWC on the web shows 20% for Friday and 90% for Saturday. Time will tell who gets it right I guess.

I've been pretty good with windows for a long time, but never had to roll back IE or go to that update area before. Kind of embarrassed. Thanks for being persistent with me. About the only racing that rain improves is formula 1. Last year world superbike started a race in a heavy downpour and I watched a racer die live on bein sports. Today there was a nascar article about how the end of last weeks race was so intense because everybody wanted to be leading when the rain came back. There had to be a lot of people like me that missed the end, because it lasted so long. 37 lead changes after the rain delay is exciting to watch.

 

I'm going to record the replay tomorrow night and watch the whole thing over again. It really was a big deal that junior won. He was on a pretty dry stretch. When he wins it has to help nascar tv ratings for a while. I live on the west coast and it rained here today. We need it so bad. I just hope it doesn't stretch this race out 10 hours.

Knock out qualifying ... less than exciting. :(

We were promised a boys have at it battle to get the fastest lap with possible blocking by other drivers. We got a parade. The drivers handled the challenge well, splitting qualifying into their own sessions and practically taking turns pulling their fastest lap.

I believe the biggest mistake in the minds of those expecting qualifying to be as exciting as an actual race was forgetting that it was the fastest lap that gets the pole. Not the first car over the finish line but the fastest lap sometime during the session. This allows the cars to space themselves out and still get a faster lap than the car in front of them without passing or a race to the finish line.

The only benefit was that qualifying was boring for an hour instead of two. There was still a lot of single cars with no one near them on the track. Not exciting.

I like the qualifying. The old way if a car has a hiccup they are dead meat. If they run one good lap they are ahead. This way they all get to tray a second and third time to get a fast time, not just one lap.

I don't like that they let them tape them up and get hot. I want them to qualify in "race trim period", the same as they are going to race.

The pole sitter or the people that qualify up front do not always win. Lots of things happen in a race.

Which makes qualifying even less important (other than those at the bottom who need to make the race).

When NASCAR announced the change in qualifying everyone called it "exciting". It was less than exciting to me.

The changes in the cars, ride height and spoiler height seems to have worked. There was lots of passing during the racing in the 2 races we have seen so far.
