    In my experience, IE5,6 are the hardest piece of sh*ts to succussfuly uninstall. I had to go into the registry and delete all IT lines etc. Its a pain in the ass.

    I've always found that reverting to the previous install has worked for me. I tried IE6, and uninstalled it a few days later.

    I still find 5.01 to be the best version of IE that has been released.

    I'd like to second the recommendation for Mozilla. I've found the newest version to be a much better browser than IE6, mainly because of the tabbed interface and the ability to search and enter URLs in the same text field, which takes the place of the Google toolbar that you have to download separately to use with IE.

    Another reason to leave IE and install a better browser: you might need IE to use some sites. Some sites seem to be configured for either IE or Netscape. For example, I can't do online banking without using IE or Netscape. For everyday browsing, I use Opera, switching to IE whenever needed. Good luck.

    IE6 is so hard to uninstall (short of reinstalling your OS with the earlier IE version) that I too would recommend using either Opera or Mozilla. Heck, even the new Netscape 6.2.1 is pretty good (since it's based on 0.9.4 of Mozilla).

    What OS are you running? I've had IE6 on my machine for a long time now and have had only 2-3 crashes, which is par for the course for any browser I've had on this machine (W2K pro). At home it's been running like a champ on my XP Pro machine, as have the other browsers.

    I think you can go into start>control panel>add-remove programs>IE6.
    Once you do this you will be given a prompt to revert back to your previous version or fix IE6.
