hi peeps, just wondering if there is anyway i can go back to IE 5.5 or earlier version as since i installed IE6 i keep getting messages when popups appear and i close them (something about it has an error and needs to close and it asks me do i want to report it to microsoft?). I am running Windows 98 Sec Ed and AOL 8.0.

Off an old ISP disk or windows disk might have it.

everytime i try and install an earlier version off a disk or microsoft website, i keep getting the same message saying im installing an earlier version to whats on the computer already and it can not continue installation

Go to Add Remove in Control Panel double click on Microsoft Internet Explorer choose to restore old version it will go back to version 4 you can then install 5,5 from an old cd disc as above

PS you can try repair first if you want

I have an evesham computer with OEM Windows XP. The add/remove list in control panel does not have internet explorer listed. How can you remove or repair it?

Thanks, I have printed it out and will try it tomorrow morning when I'm fresh and well rested. Watch this space.
Wish me luck - goodnight sweet prince!

Yep, I agree. I mostly use Opera (6.05) though I've got IE and Mozilla as well and use those too.

I find IE has an annoying habit of presenting a blank window with "Done" at the bottom left. I just don't get that with the others.

"Sweet prince" - there must be an anagram in there somewhere!

Please tell me you are not a bloke!
