Please help; Uninstall IE 6.0

By Spring ·
Please help! I have installed Service Pack 2.0 for win2k and now my IE won't open html pages as a new window and I have to somehow fix it or uninstall IE6.0. I can neither remove IE nor re-install another copy... I went to MS tech pages and they simply state that I have to reinstall my OS! I think Bill Gates must have been tooo busy on his vacation to provide a more sensible solution thanks. Thanks!

Please help; Uninstall IE 6.0

Unfortunately this works just as Bill wanted it to! There is a major move towards tracking everything now days, as seen in many other programs. IE 6 and Winsows XP are no different. There's big money in refferals as they call it, and Bill's got those $ signs in his eyes again. We have been able to shutdown a few phone home apps in IE6,and there is still at lease one left but we have not been able to uninstall it sucessfully. Hate to say it but unless someone else has been luckier, I'm afraid you have a Format C: in your future. If however you do find a solution, I would also install the free version of zonealarm on your machine to retain some privacy

If you cannot use the Add/Remove Programs to restore to a previous version then you may want to check the options listed below
Installing the service pack eliminates the option of uninstalling IE6,if the service pack was reinstalled
Here are a fewoptions to check out
1)See Microsoft Knowledgebase article Q243907

Reinstalling Windows 2000 will reinstall IE 5. It is the only way I know to do this with Windows2k. I have never had any problems with the reinstall of Win2k. It works without user intervention for the most part and takes about an hour. I also have never had any problems with other programs after reinstalling Win2k. After a Reinstall of Win2k I only have to update service pack and 128 bit encrytion pack. It is nowhere close to scratching the Hard drive and starting new as long as you choose to repair an existing install. Don't sweat it, just do it.
