Just wondering if anyone here knows how I can get IE6 running in Win7 as I need to do some tests in it

I'm looking for the easiest way and not looking to do dual boot or anything

Thanks

If you are using the Professional or Ultimate version, you can download the free Windows Virtual Pc and XP Mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx) from Microsoft and install them.  The XP  comes with IE6 installed.  See this article:
