I have a situation where a policy was rolled out installing IE7 over IE6. Even though tests were caried out successfully, an in house application is no longer functioning and is effecting every user with that application. What would be the quickest way to roll back to IE6? Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If this is windows XP I believe you can just uninstall IE7 through add and remove programs, make sure to check for updates, then just restart the computer and it will reload with IE6, which comes with XP.

    Does the uninstall restore all of the Zones to their pre-IE 7 state? I have not had much luck in that area and had to reload systems to resolve issues.
