Want to uninstall and reinstall Internet Explorer

  JCT 09:52 09 Apr 2003

I’m running Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.11061S SP1 q313829 on Windows 98SE, which has worked perfectly for months, but because of a problem I’m now having, I wanted to uninstall and reinstall it. Control Panel Add/Remove programs only gives me the choices to add a component or repair IE – restore previous configuration is greyed out, and there’s no uninstall option.
I tried reinstalling from both Windows Update Setup Files folder and from the original IE6 CD, in the hope that this might over-write the problem, and in each case got the message that setup cannot continue because there is a newer version already installed. I assume this is because I’ve done a couple of Windows Updates since the original IE6 install. I tried moving the IE folder out of Program Files, but still got the message about there being a newer version.
Basically, Help! – I don’t know what to do next.

It could be worth trying a visit to Microsoft Windows Update, and trying to download the program again. I did this once and it just downloaded all that was needed to correct the problem.

You can use IEradicator2001.zip to remove IE all together you can then restore from a CD but it will not remove Outlook Express click here
