    Anyone know how to accomplish this? I have I.E. 6.0 and need to go back to 5.5 due to a web application compatability issue.

    OS is W2k pro

    cheers,

    Control Panel/Software Add-remove/MS INternet Explorer/remove =>restore former Windows configuration?

    That should restore your 5.5.
    If it's greyed out, or otherwise unavailable, try this:

    Open C:\Program files\Internet Explorer.
    Right click the folder Uninstall information.
    Click 'Properties', and uncheck the hidden mode, and press 'OK'
    Now go to C:\Program files\Internet Explorer\Setup, and Run 'setup.exe'

    Now if I remember right, I remember Mosaic1 saying somewhere, that if you don't delete that folder before upgrading, you may not have the option available.

    I'm not entirely sure whether that's true in all cases.

    Anyway, have a go at it!

    Good luck,
