IE 6 Uninstall/Re-Install procedure?


xp dude

I updated IE6 the other day and have had nothing but problems since then. At first, it would immediately close anytime I tried to open or go to any webpage. I can't check my hotmail from Outlook 2002, Outlook Express 6, or IE 6. There must be a procedure to uninstall IE 6. The add/remove programs doesn't uninstall, just removes the icons (and associations). If I manually delete the IE folder contents and registry keys and try to re-install from the IE 6 upgrade I downloaded before switching to XP Pro, it says I already have the latest version installed and won't proceed further? I have ran 3 different trojan scanners and 2 antivirus programs and am confident I have no viruses causing these problems. Any ideas? Is there a procedure for uninstalling IE 6?

Um sadly the procedure for uninstalling IE6 is uninstalling windows...your only hope is to do a system restore back before the problem began sorry dude =o(

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
