✔ Best Answer
IE6 should be listed in Control panel> add/remove programs.

Is you don't see it listed there then it can't be removed.

Why do you want to remove it? IE6 is the latest version of IE that is still supported on Win2000.

You can install multiple browsers so there is no need to remove IE6.

I just posted a reply....hit submit and it brought me back to the log in page...Sorry OtheHill.
This one showed I'll try and remember what I said (gettin' older and BTS settin' in).

I just want to slim the machine down, get the patches/drivers/dll's etc. that will allow the installation of a newer browser that can interface with online card games for my brother-in-law. Him and sis have no money to update/upgrade the equipment. Lol, what they got is me and my limited knowledge of comps and software. Hence, this request to help communities.

IE6 is integrated into Windows & cannot be removed. If you want to slim things down, look elsewhere, there are plenty of other things you can remove. Try the free trial version of 2000lite:

Win2000 came with IE5 integrated. IE6 would have been an upgrade.

As I stated above, you can install multiple browsers. If you don't open IE6 it doesn't use any resources. You can't easily remove IE5 so you will still have a version of IE installed. Don't worry about it.

I see your other post was deleted. I had left a reply there about using 2000lite. You don't have to pay for it, just use the free trial version. Some of the options are disabled in the free version but there's no time limitation so you can use it as long as you like.
