Hi, quick question.
I have a System running Windows XP SP2 with internet explorer version 6 sp2.
I would like to downgrade the version of internet explorer to version 6 SP1.

Already tried deinstalling iexplorer from " Software window", but that just disables the iexplorer.
When trying to install iexplore 6 SP1, it still gives respons that newer product is already installed and that the setup process will be canceled.

Hope anyone can help me out.

Difficult to understand why you want to do that.

You probably need to uninstall SP2 and then do a repair install of WinXP.

If you mean downgrade IE6 to SP1 and keep WinXP SP2, that is not possible.

I mean it this way:

You probably need to uninstall >WinXP< SP2 and then do a repair install of WinXP.

As blue_zee says - what you want to do is not possible.

The only way would be - if you manually upgraded IE6 to sp2 - then you could do a system restore back to before then.
