    I have been using IE7 and would prefer to roll back to IE6 as a few sites have not been loading properly. I have tried using Add/Remove which deletes IE7 but IE6 does not appear to be fully functional now.

    I cannot use the Windows Update site as I get a message that Microsoft has encountered a problem and cannot load the page. Also pages seem slower to load.

    I have noticed from Forums I have visited that IE6 can be downloaded but not recommended for XP Service Pack 2. I still have my setup disc. Can I reinstall from that and how do I go about it?

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    One thing that might work, is to use Add/Remove Programs, then Add/Remove Windows Components. Select IE from the list. Follow thru with the next prompts. When done...reboot. Then go back and recheck the selection. Have your XP CD w/SP2 handy.

    Thanks, I will try the Add/Remove again. I presume I will be prompted to install again from the disc?

    Thanks also for the link to the older versions.
