Can’t you just uninstall IE7 and install IE6?

If I had to go about it, I’d do this:

Control Panel -> Add/Remove Windows Components -> Internet Explorer.

Once that’s done, reassign your default browser to Firefox or whatever else you’ve got, then do a registry sweep to remove any old ties to the program. (Try CCleaner.)

Then I’d go here to get IE6 and install it.

Might not be the fastest method, but I’m pretty sure it would work.

yes, it can be done..I did it a long time ago when it first came out because it was causing problems. it works fine now, but i use firefox, so I guess it doesn’t matter.

After you follow that article, download IE6 and install it.

If you upgraded IE7 from IE6 all you have to do is go to add/remove programs and uninstall 7.0 this will roll back to IE6
