To avoid this error message and reinstall the same version of Internet Explorer and Outlook Express, follow these steps: 1 While you are logged on as an administrator, click Start, and then click Run

2 In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK

3 Locate the appropriate registry subkey, right-click the IsInstalled (REG_DWORD) value, and then click Modify

To reinstall only the Internet Explorer 6 browser component on Windows XP, use the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}

To reinstall only Outlook Express 6 on Windows XP, use the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}

4 Change the value data from 1 to 0, and then click OK

5 Quit Registry Editor, and then install Internet Explorer 6

6 To reinstall Windows XP updates, visit the following Microsoft Windows Update Web site:

By default, Internet Explorer 6 is preinstalled in all versions of Windows XP and cannot be removed To provide computer manufacturers more flexibility in configuring desktop versions of Windows XP, Microsoft has made it possible for OEMs, administrators, and users to remove user access to Internet Explorer while leaving the Internet Explorer code intact and fully functional to make sure the functionality of programs and operating system functions that rely on it For example, Windows XP supports an "IEAccess=off" switch in the Unattend.txt file, and Internet Explorer has been added to the Add/Remove Windows Components section of the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel This does not reinstall Internet Explorer
