IE 6 is no longer avail.  You can download the latest version for IE from the microsoft home page.

    You can try a file sharing program such as limewire, or check the cnet website they may still have it up.

Hi after downgrading ie8 to ie6 and upgrading ie6 to ie7, internet explorer fails to open. pls help solve


Download the installer for whatever version of IE you would like to use to your desktop. Next go into the control panel and then to add and remove programs. Uninstall the current version of IE then reboot and reinstall IE from the installer on your desktop.

Exactly same problem


Because of security fixes it is unwise to revert back to IE6. Simply install IE8 and don't use it. Try Firefox, Safari, or Opera for your web browser. Microsoft products are ALL designed to be updated regularly. Probably the fastest way to fix the error is simply wipe your hard drive and reinstall the operating system. I think I would try repairing your IE6 installation if you have not tried that already. Control panel, add/remove programs area will have the option.

Print out problem in outlook express 6


Try Re-Installing Internet Explorer in Add or Remove Programs, i.e if you have IE7 or IE8 then you Remove it from list, re-boot and re-install IE7 or IE8 BUT if you are using IE6 then you can either Update it to IE7 or IE8.

Alernatively while in Add or Remove Programs you'll see 4 options in the Left hand side pane, choose Add/Remove Windows Components and then Uncheck Internet Explore and Outlook Express, then click Next etc, re-boot and again do the same except this time Check OE and IE.

WARNING make sure you have saved/backed up your emails b4 going on with this last method.

Best bet is to Un-Install/Remove or Update IE6? if not already done so, this is all I can suggest and if those options don't fix it then run a Anti-Malware program it picks up stuff the Anti-Virus programs can't.

Good Luck.

Getting message stating add-on was running when problem occurred


Try going into your control panel & uninstall your Internet explorer, then re-install it. IE7 uninstall can be found in the main add-remove program window, IE6 uninstall can be found under the add-remove windows components part of the add-remove programs. To re-install IE7, though, you need to go to windows update to download IE7 again. This won't be a problem because uninstalling IE7 automaticaly returns you to IE6

IE7 flashes briefly when I click on it and then goes away


Hi,

This usually happens after installation. 1. Click START–>RUN and type cmd
2. At the prompt, type cd and press ENTER
3. Type cd Program Files and press ENTER
4. Type cd Internet Explorer and press ENTER

5. Type regsvr32 IEPROXY.DLL
6. You should get a confirmation that the IEPROXY.DLL has been registered. You can then close all windows and try Internet Explorer again.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, try

Launching IE with add-ons disabled:
1. Click START–>RUN
2. Type iexplore -extoff
You can also create a shortcut so that you can always run Internet Explorer this way.
1. Right-click on the Desktop
2. New–>Shortcut
3. Enter in iexplore -extoff

Hope this helps

IE 8 Installation Problems


I had the same problem. I had IE7 and installed IE8. IE8 caused a lot of problems, so I used system restore. I was back to IE7 but it was not functioning properly. I had to downgrade to IE6 and then reinstall IE7. Its all back to normal. What a pain

Dell 922 printer all in one


I have a Dell 942, and I also ran into problems scanning. Basically, the Dell "All In One Center" refused to open, and when the printer generates a scan, it tries to send it to that application. What worked for me was uninstalling Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8. Once I was back to IE6, my Dell printer functioned normally. Upgrading to IE7 immediately "broke" it again.
I discovered this after running a repair installation of Windows (a recommended action any time you start experiencing weird problems). I did not have to format my hard drive or lose any data, although some applications had to be reinstalled or re-patched afterward. But the repair install took me back to IE6, and magically, my printer suddenly worked again! When I went to the Microsoft Update site and upgraded to IE7, poof! Dell AIO Center would no longer open, and I couldn't scan.
If this solution is helpful to you, please rate it.
Thank you,
~~Cheryl

Internet explorer canot display web page? ---winxp pro/ desktop computor


I found lots of problem with Ie7,what I personal do is
1.I have a second option for my Browser, that is I install mozilla
firefox.I use it for my default browser.You can download it here
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

2.I downgrade my IE7 to IE6 by going to ADD/Remove program
and uninstall IE7.After that your IE7 will become IE6
** Windows default is IE6,if you uninstall IE7,your system will become IE6 Automatically.

Best is to try the first step,I think this will help to solve your problem.
Takecare.

Hotspot connection problems


well you can't have IE6 and IE7 installed on the same computer at the same time, so I am guessing you are using 2 separate computers. More then likely it is a program with the internet settings of your computer rather then IE7.

try this app on the system with connectivity issues

http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html

just run it and click fix, this will flush all your internet settings and fixes about 85% of connectivity problems

if that doesn't work try reinstalling your wireless adapter, by removing the drive then reinstalling it.

if you are still having issues try scanning your system for spyware and adware

while IE7 handles web pages and scripts differently it still uses the same HTTP protocol that IE6 does, therefore there is no reason it wouldn't work when IE6 does.


Also in the future please post your Operating system to help diagnose the problem better.
