Have you tried the repair option, rather than re-installing. If you go into settings > control panel > add/remove programs > then select IE and click on change/remove a window opens that offers the option to repair.
I'm following this thread because I'm trying to track done an IE6 problem I've had a while. Sometimes when I start IE6, the page 'hangs' with only the basic screen drawn, i.e. no menu items or icons or anything else. Ctrl-Alt-Del tells me IE6 has stopped responding, so I end the task, then start IE6 again, most times successfully.
If you repair IE6, presumably it removes any updates and hotfixes done by Windows Update.
Does W.Update recognise this and prompt for those that need to be done again ?
Or do I have to make a note of all the updates done (in Help-About) ?
