Thank you for your caution, Steve [Sknis].
Don't use that MSI command, Osborn4
Executing that MSI command completely uninstalls the whole of DLA
, and while completely nuking the application may be fine for 'Drew Guy', and his command line is very helpful for those who do
want to uninstall it, it isn't the way to resolve the conflict between IE8 or IE9 and the Sonic DLA add-on 188.8.131.52 for Internet Explorer.
I don't normally use IE, but today I spent some time trying all this stuff out [the only
way to be sure] and even installed IE7 and IE8 [ugh!].
It turns out that DLA will install add-ons into Internet Explorer, additional to DLA's core functionality.
One particular version of the add-on [ver184.108.40.206] is not liked by IE8 and IE9.
The main DLA program still works fine, but the add-on won't.
The way to prevent the conflict between the add-on and DLA without uninstalling DLA, is to disable the add-ons in IE. There are two simple ways to do this:
When you get a pop-up from IE complaining about the add-on, just click the radio button to always open IE without the add-on.
Go to the IE toolbar Tools > View and Manage add-ons
-locate the DLA add-on, right-click on the Status column, and left-click on "Disable"
I hope this helps you, Osborn4.
