How do I reinstall Internet Explorer 6.0 on my XP machine?
Sometimes you may want to reinstall IE 6.0 from your XP CD.
Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management
Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.
To do so follow these steps:
- Insert the Windows XP CD in your CD drive.
- Open Start / Run and type:
rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 c:\windows\inf\ie.inf
(in one long line. Just copy/paste the above entry)
- Press ENTER
You can also use the I386 folder from the CD, just copy it to your HD, but make sure you change the installation path to the new location.
