Hi, I am running windows Me and Internet Explorer 6.0. I cannot find how to fix it. It is not listed in add/remove. Also whatever screwed up IE wiped everything out of my add/remove window. I have since cleaned the machine with Panda scan and
various other spyware removers but IE is still hanging on shutdown and nothing in add/remove window. Any help would be greatly appreciated'

You can download the IE6 installer to a floppy using another machine and run it on the machine with the problem. It's about480kb. I don't know the routine for registry repair or system file repair on an ME machine but I would certainly run those.

If Internet Explorer is not listed in the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel, you may be able to start the IE Repair tool from command prompt.

Click Start~~~>Run, and then type the following:

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"

NOTE: This command is case sensitive.

If you need to replace a bad file, use either the System File Checker (SFC) tool or the Extract tool to extract the file. For more info please check out the Microsoft Support page:
