    I use an additional browser to IE6, it's called SecureIE and it seems that prefers to be my proprietory browser. Most of the time, when I install SecureIE, IE6 is removed from the Start Menu & Desktop.

    Now, IE6 is completly gone! The application I mean, I have several files for IE, but no actual application. The files that I do have should appear in an attachment, a pasted image of WinExplorer files in Power Point. Although I see "UninstallerInformation" with some 337 KB of data, nothing shows when I open the folder. I did a full search of any IE files/folders, including any hidden/read only files. Nothing else shows up than what shows up for me in my search of what's in the program files.

    I went to Microsoft, through WinUpdate -- my only access to using IE, if I enter a different name in the address bar. I then downloaded the IE6 application.

    When I attempted to install the IE6 app from the setup I got, it failed. It stated that I already have a "later version of IE6 and cannot continue."

    I'm thinking that I should uninstall everything I have from my former install of IE and re-install from the setup from Microsoft and then update after that.

    But, since I can access IE through WinUpdate?

    What's my best course of action?

    Here's my Hijack Logfile:
