Started to install IE 6 on Windows 98SE.  Installation wasn't complete and now when you reboot get dialog:

"resume setup"
"start setup over"

I know there is a registry hack/knowledge base article to stop this installation.  I can't find it.

Why don't you try one of the options?

After that you can restore to previous install or uninstall.

If you hack the registry, you may end with a soup of IE that could be difficult to troubleshoot.

I tried that.  The problem I'm having is this user has AOL on the box (dialup).  When IE is installing, it gets 40% or so done and then AOL keeps wanting to dial out.  I think that is getting in the way of the install.

I know there is a way to stop Windows from continuing the install, just don't remember the reg key
