Internet Explorer 6 uninstalling

On XP ie 6 is listed under windows components. Unchecking it doesn't really uninstall every component. You can still execute the browser using favorites. So what good is it to uncheck and recheck it. What's removed? Where's the repair reinstall option? Unless in xp it never gets corrupted so it never would need to be installed. Just curious.

The only thing 'removing' IE through the control panel applet does is removes the visible links to it. If your IE is thrashed, then you need to do a repair installation of XP.

If you think something is corrupted, then you can open a command window and type in 'sfc /scannow' (without the quotes). This utililty will scan for corrupted system files and prompt you to replace them.

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!
