BIG Problem with IE5 under W2K …

I have a following problem with IE5: window.open don’t work properly. This is a very big problem for me, because I’m developing web sites. So I want to reinstall IE5 (I know this will decide the problem, I’ve already do this under Windows 98), but there isn’t such option as uninstall in ‘Add/Remove Programs’ (in Windows 98 there is repair option when you try to uninstall IE5). When I tried to run the ie5setup.exe the system tells me “Setup has detected a newer version of IE already installed on the system. Setup cannot continue.” Is it possible for W2K to update IE5 and if this is, what can I do to repair my Explorer? (Upgrading to IE5.5 is not an option for me).

Any comments will be appreciated.

There is a remove utility in the IE4 resource kit..maybee it work also in w2k..

IERemove.exe is a command-line executable file designed to remove Internet Explorer 4 and its components. IERemove.exe cannot remove Internet Explorer without using command line options. For information about the command-line options available for IERemove.exe, type ieremove /?.

It can maybee remove IE5 also.

But is there no remove in the add/remove dialog box?

No, there isn't. I won't ask this question if there were such an option.

Try repairing your Windows 2000 installation. Use the setup on the CD-ROM or use the bootable CD feature to repair the Windows 2000 installaion(this includes IE5).
