Internet Explorer 6 IS Windows XP Professional.

Same beast, IE is like a tree with roots that just delve deaper and deaper into the operating system like a parasite.

Unless you get (and pay for) a program called XPLite Pro, you don't really have a hope of actually "uninstalling" IE6.

Most people will tell you that its against your own interest to "uninstall" IE (any version), let alone the hassle of doing it. There's actually a program that will do it, but I recommend it only for people that simply don't care what happens to their computer. I don't remember the name of the program, but Google should turn it up.

You can choose to uninstall windows XP options from that, including IE6.

There may be a hardcore and free way to do it, but I am not sure how.

Have you tried using the 'system restore' option on XP to restore your PC to a date when IE was working properly? (I'm assuming it was functioning at some point in time).

I've used this and it is a great tool. Don't worry, you will not lose any personal files etc if you use this.
