Yes, I am. Indeed. Forsooth.
The way I have messed up with my Internet browser proves that I'm nothing short of an idiot. I've been cursing myself since I did this.
Here's what I did:
Till Wednesday, I had Internet Explorer 7 running on my computer. Then I got to know that IE8 was released. I didn't care to look at any reviews or bloggers' reactions. I was informed that it was "fast," "compatible," and who-knows-what-else. Then I downloaded IE8. It was pretty fine until I (in my infinite wisdom) decided to uninstall IE7 before installing IE8. And boy, what a wonderful decision it was!
IE8 was slow in my computer and I decided to revert to IE7 at once. Then I uninstalled IE8. Meanwhile, I may have messed up with a thing or two. Now neither IE7 nor IE8 can be installed on my computer on account of "Cryptographic Service errors" and "Win32 generic host" stuff.
Now I've definitely reverted. To IE6. I don't know what I should do now. I'm so put off.
O' course, I'm an Idiot (with a capital I).
Now there's something coming up which can actually cheer me up. Watch out...
