Just found Softonic download of version 6 and I am back where I was before the "upgrade"!  Be sure to uninstall version 7 first and also be careful when going through the Softonic download - they  provide 2 "adders" that I chose NOT to do.  Good luck!

This solution works perfectly for me too with BB curve 8250.    Will not be going anywhere near  Desktop 7 until RIM announces a fix.    I just wasted half a day of my life trying to recover from V7.
