to reinstall Internet Explorer.

In My computer, click on the C drive and open the program files folder. Find the Internet Explorer folder, open it, and click on the icon marked: ie6setup

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) ?

daba, sorry but I can't say. I've never had to use the repair option [I don't use IE I use Crazy Browser], although I suppose it might depend on what needs repairing ;-)
