Downgrade IE 5.5.

I have IE 5.5 and I need to install and work with a program that works only with IE 4
When downloading IE 4 it wont install for it says there is a newer version on my system.
Microsoft wont let me download IE 4 for this same reason.
Is there an independent site where I may download IE4. Or a way to get around this.

Thank you
Doxa

What I mean is that IE 5.5 will get uninstalled but Windows still keeps an older browser version (because if you still want to go on the internet) when your finished you just upgrade to IE5.5

Completing what dluedi says:
Open Control Panel > Add/Remove program > Choose IE 5.5 from the list. Now choose to uninstall. A question will show: If you want to "Repair" or "Restore the older version". Choose "Restore older version".
Notice: You can not uninstall IE 5.5 without patch. You can only "restore the older version" unless the installation system files are damaged.

Many programs that limits the browser choice usally have the browser included on their installation CD, check it and see if you can install it from there.

Doxa,

Are you sure the instructions say ONLY IE4 or is it possibly IE4 or higher?

Offhand, I can't think of any programs that wouldn't work.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing, what programs would'nt run on something better then what they were originally programmed for? Well with the exception of Windows 2000 and some games ;)

Doxa,

You didn't address any of the above suggestions or questions.
Downgrading IE is NOT a good idea.

What's the name of the program that won't work?

I've tried to uninstall IE 5.5 many times or intall IE 4 before the suggestions were made. The IE 5.1 that came with Amadeus Vista (the program) will not install either. I'll try to reinstall 5.5 again to see if it install with an uninstall feature.
Again. Any body have suggestions on how to uninstall it

Thank you

Personally speaking, I would never install a backlevel browser, they were ridden with problems and bugs that subsequent releases fixed.  I installed IE 6.0 final, and reinstalled/updated all my Browser Plugins and have been pleased with the excellent results, added stability and improved performance.

Good luck,
Asta
