i cannot uninstall my internet explorer and when trying to do it manually some files/applications will not allow me to remove them, any suggestions?

Did you try my suggestion to repair 1st? Uninstalling ie is not easy.

I didn't see your other thread. It's best to stick to one, else can get confusing. Try this:


If you try the described method and "Restore previous..." is diabled, find the file iemigrat.dll and rename it to iemigrat.old. Reinstall Windows over the current installation (you will lose no data), then install Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2. Visit Windows Update for the security patches.

reinstall whole of windows?

U can't uninstall ie from windows as it's part of os. U have to downgrade then fix then upgrade. Or u could try another browser like Opera.

reinstall whole of windows?

...yes, reinstall Windows os over previous.

BTW be cautious and back-up data just in case.
