I want to uninstall IE6. I'm using FireFox and completely satisfied with it. I tried looking at MS's website and it tells me that I need to go into Add/Remove in teh control panel to do it.
However a few weeks back I had posted saying that my Add/Remove shows nothing at all and I have to remove programs using the registry to find the uninstall string.
Now, I'm no expert, or even that comfortable working with the registry but how would I go about removing IE6? I cannot find it under the section where I uninstall other programs from. Thanks for any help.

not a good idea. too much still depends on IE. especially window updates. about the only way to REALLY get rid of it. get a system that runs linux or you can buy an apple. :eek:

I use firefox all the time as well, but I do keep IE for Windows Updates and sometimes firefox blocks certain popups that you dont want it to that SP2 allows
