    I have upgraded to IE.6, so is it possible to locate version 5 and delete it -- OR has it already been wiped out by the installation of the new version?

    If you delete it you may lose some features of 6.0. I would just keep it. However, when you (one day) install 7.0, then you can delete 5.0 (but keep 6.0) ;)

    v5.5 works best with 98+. You can revert to previous installation via add/remove. If it's greyed out :

    DOWNGRADING FROM IE 6 TO IE 5.5

    If you try the described method and "Restore previous..." is diabled, find the file iemigrat.dll and rename it to iemigrat.old. Reinstall Windows over the current installation (you will lose no data), then install Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2. Visit Windows Update for the security patches.
