Internet Explorer Problem

Hello the people of Geeks to go,

I seem to have lost my Internet Explorer, and can't find it again. :whistling:

I think I upgraded from IE 6 to IE 7 BETA version 2, and then uninstalled Internet Explorer altogether, and can't seem to download it again.

I went to the Microsoft download site to download Internet Explorer Version 1 of IE 6, but it said I already have a newer version of IE on my computer - which I can only assume to be the IE 7 I downloaded a few months ago.

But whenever I sign in to MSN, and click on the icon at the top saying I have new hotmail messages, it uses Internet Explorer (looks like 6), instead of my default browser, Mozilla Firefox.

Please can someone tell me how to delete any previous versions of IE I have on my computer, and install the IE 6 (prefer it over the BETA 7), as I want it in addition to firefox.

Thanks for any help :blink:

Click start, control panel, add and remove, tick show updates and check for any version of IE, remove any you find

If you do not find one, click add and remove windows components, remove the tick for internet explorer, click OK, confirm, reboot when it finishes

Return to add and remove windows components, replace the tick for IE, click OK, you will need the XP CD

After it installs, visit Microsoft Update to check for updates for IE

OK Thanks,

I couldn't find any on add and remove normal programs,

And I did the next step, but there was no tick there, so I ticked it and pressed next, Finish (I don't have the windows CD btw, I can't find it)

Now it works, but it has no URL bar :\

I did the updates thing, but it couldn't find any.
