umm

Correct me if I am wrong but going to add/rem Programs and then add/rem window components then unchecking internet explorer folowed by the next button will remove it from the computer. As a internet tech I have done this many times...

That doesn't remove it. Removes the shortcuts and such. But since Explorer is similar and basically the same as IE, removing it completely it cannot do.

Follow me?

Heinekin - that does not remove IE. You cannot - for now - separate IE6 from the OS - it is considered a key component. When SP1 is released later this year it will separate IE6 from the OS and provide a simple means for removing it.

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
