I cannot uninstall ie 6
« on: May 23, 2004, 09:59:30 PM »
IE 6 has been really messed up page cannot display page will load cannot open links...and so on. Anyway the option to remove IE 6 is grayed out and I get this message-ERROR CREATING PROCESS<IE6WZDEXE/A/S. "C:\PROGRAM FILES/INTERNET EXPLORER/IE6SETUP.EXE">Reason:the system cannot find the file spectified   Is there any way to uninstall this? I have tried to install over itself but it just says I have the latest ver. and will  not install. Repair option is a joke..system file checker does not find anything. Help!  Also says previous internet files are missing-does not say what files they are.

    Linda....What happened ...did your p/c contact a virus?
    Here's a blurb from Microsoft re uninstalling it ........
    Yes it has bugs in it .....but I have two p/c running XP
    with IE 6 and "touch wood" have not had any problems .......yet.......but I do make sure I have all the fixes and patches

    Anyway here's the link ....

    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

    Hi Linda,

    My IE6 was mess up too. Go to some website (like hotmail.com and it won't go pass userID passwd page). Im running win98, n was thinking mayb IE6 n win98 not suitable for each other.

    As far as I know, IE cannot b downgraded n cannot be uninstalled.

    My only solution is to use another broswer: Opera.

    Wish u  luck

    try this>http://www.litepc.com/ieradicator.html  or in the add/remove section you could try a ie6 repair but another option is mozilla or avant browsers which are better than ie6
