update to Re-installed Internet Explorer 6 keeps crashing or closing down

By sdgZF ·
Hello everybody, i am glad to say that my pc seems to be running very nicely now. i havent done the re-install of the os yet. i just opened my pc, then IE6. immediately, the Microsoft download site opened, asking me to download IE7. i didnt waste any time! i saved the file and then proceeded to run the file, viola! i had IE7. after that everything went smoothly, i manually downloaded all the files i needed, including Firefox. hehe. now the only quirk is that automatic updates identifies the needed updates, but cant proceed to download and install the updates, which i did manually. whew. i saved all the updates in a folder, including SP2 and SP3. what could have caused IE6 to go instantly to the IE7 download prompt?

You have installed IE7

Yes, you can get IE6 back again. Personally, I don't care for IE7, mostly because it usurps more of my desktop with 3 obligatory toolbars.

Mark Kaelin has posted an article on TR about how to axe IE7:

Microsoft has a knowledge base article on uninstalling IE7:

After you have removed IE7, you should be able to recover IE6 by reenabling this in Windows Components Add/Remove menu.

Please post back in this thread if you have more questions or problems.

You may wish to peruse the following Microsoft bulletin:

If you have difficulty reinstalling IE6, the following was previously posted in the TR Forum:

>cmd: %systemroot%\inf [Ie.inf file]
>find the IE.inf file that is located in Windows\Inf folder
>Right click the IE.inf file and then click Install

I have noticed

by Jacky Howe In reply to update to Re-installed In ...

that on a couple of rebuilds the updates were different, one of them downloaded IE7 almost straight away and then the service pack the other one did eighty six or so updates first. Strange but they are both working properly.
