    Going back to IE 6

    Hi

    Is there a way to reinstall IE 6 and uninstall IE 7 on Windows XP desktop because I want to see how my site looks like on IE 6 .

    Thanks

    I'd recommend using Virtual PC and use one of the image files Microsoft provides.
    Google search it, I'd love to provide link but I'm too noob in this forum to post it. :-(

    I use Multiple IE, which allows you to install versions 2-6 as separate installations.

    I use Multiple IE as well. What are you going to do to test your site in IE7 again after you fix the IE6 problems? Keep uninstalling and reinstalling?

    You can always uninstall IE7 in order o go back to IE6 provided hat you haven't installed SP3 since. If you have installed SP3 you'd need to uninstall that before uninstalling IE7.
