My IE browser got corrupted (had version 6, Service Pack 1)..Now it comes up but I am not able to click on anything in it..Cannot go to homepage, cannot minimize or anything..

I un-installed IE from windows add/remove component wizard(maybe I shouldnt have done it) ..Downloaded a version of IE 6 from MS site. When I tried to reinstall it says, newer version of IE detected..install cannot continue..

I went ahead and clened some registry entries referring to IE too..still no luck..
What is the best way to re-install IE? Any version will do..My OS is Windows XP Home.

Thanks,

Make sure you have downloaded the correct IE version for Windows XP SP1.  The uninstall for Windows XP SP1 is different for XP SP2.
