broadband how do I replace v6 with v5.5 or v5

might an older version be on your disk?

Click start> setting> control panel> add or remove programs>add or remove windows components then untick the box for IE I think that should do it but Not 100% as I never tried but that is how you remove programms from windows (this is for xp) but I would imagine something along those lines for windows 98

Thank you johnnyrocker,but how do I find out if it is still there. ( I'm a novice )

you can put ver6 over the top of earlier versions, it will then update all it needs without human interference......

In reply to Morpheus, I was told by one of ntl's
advisers that version 6 was too powerful for w98
and eventually I would have many problems

Hi, In 'Add Remove Programs in your 'Control Panel' Click on 'Windows Set Up' Put a tick in the box in front of 'Internet Explorer'. You will need your Win 98 disc to complete the installation. (I am doing this from memory, I hope it is right) cheers, Bill
