You can not. I know (in XP) it's listed as an uninstallable component, but it will not let you. There's no way to get it off of your computer. And if you were somehow successful in it, a lot of your programs would have severly limited functionality because they depend on several of IE's components to work properly.

Sorry I took so long to answer back but I had a MAJOR blow out on my machine. I just finnished reformating my hard drive because I some how lost most of my sys files and could'nt do anything, don't know what happend just rebooted and bam they were gone. Think I got everything up and runnin now!!!
As for why I wanted to get rid of IE6 well it was a spur of the moment thing but since then I have changed my mind, I read in one of your forums you need it for windows update anyway.
Thank you very much for your responce though I really appreciate your help, i'm sure I will have more problems in the future that I will need help with and I am sure glad you guys & gals are here to help... :tazz:
