X-post to WinME General.

Have you ever reinstalled WinME without having first uninstalled IE6?

Try this:

Download the IE6SP1 Setup file from
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

But DON'T run it.

Now ...

Go to My Computer - Tools - Folder Options - View:
- Select "Show hidden files and folders", click Apply - OK

Create a folder named "Old uninstall".

Go to folder C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Uninstall Information.

Now Edit - Select All - Cut all files.

Open "Old uninstall" folder and paste the files.

Run the IE6SP1 Setup file you downloaded and install IE.

If everything works as expected, you can delete the "Old Uninstall" folder
and the files you moved.

Good luck,

Zee
