No matter how I try - the Automatic Configuration Script box in Internet Explorer remains filled with our script. I need to remove it from this one Windows 2000 computer that is running specialiazed medical lab software.

Once I uncheck the box and click ok - go back to internet options - it's right back. It's not holding my settings. Is there a way to uninstal/reinstall IE6?
