How do I overwrite old IEAK Explorer installation?

There is an old IEAK-created version of IE on our PDC. Some idiot installed it there some time ago, it has a lot of restrictions. I was able to open it up for administrator by messing with the registry. But any other user gets the old restrictions.

I was advised to use IEAK to build a new wide-open version of IE and install it over the old one. So I set up a new build with NO restrictions and installed it, but nothing changed. It seems that creating restrictions in IEAK isn't as easy as removing them. How do I create an unrestricted build that will actually remove the previous restrictions?

Sorry about the points, it's all I have.

Did you upgrade the proxy.pac version number? Clients will only download the new setting when a new version is available.

I  have added points to make this worthwhile to someone...

IEAK is installed on the same server as the IE client I want to replace. What do I need to do to successfully install the supposedly unrestricted version of IE6 I created, so that the restrictions will no exist?

Yes it is. And I just wanted to update the version of IE on that local server to one that is unrestricted. But even my new IEAK installer doesn't remove the restrictions in place from the earlier version.

I'm not only giving you the points. I'm going to open a new question with your name on it. Just post some comment there and I'm giving you more points. I had been searching for the answer to this problem on and off for almost a year.

Well, apparently giving you points like that is against EE policy, but thanks so much for your help.

Mike, I am glad that worked for you. It has not provided the same results on an XP Pro client, however.

Thanks for the points, but your generous comments hold more value to me.
