Hey,

I wanna uninstall I.E 6.0 because it loads and then just dont work and i cant reinstall it for Service Pack 2 on Microsofts site has it only has it for Service pack 1 so if i get rid of this and downlaod another I.E version which will work with Service Pack 2 then i'am ok.

So i can bring it up like so in the ''Windows Componets'' screen do i just tick the checkbox and only that checkbox then click next and will that totally uninstall it ?

Infact is it even possibe for me to get I.E back on service pack 2 ? & i dont have the discs to reinstall as my XP home was already installed.

You would think it would be easy to just uninstall I.E and then just re-install but noooo it has to be a little bugger about it :tazz:

But you know what i really am tempted to just tick that box in the ''Windows Componets'' screen and see what happens if i naff it up and damage something then whatever, it cant get any worse.
