Hi Webber :wave:

There is a trick I learned a while back while surfing and learning windows that will work for your situation. I guess all knowledge is need at one time or another :wink:

It has come to my attention that you need to see a hidden file/folder. To do this you should follow either method that pertains to your OS stated:

Windows XP Method

  • Click on the Start Menu
  • Click On Control Panel
  • On the right click "Switch to Classic View"
  • Double Click on Folder Options
  • Click on the View Tab
  • Bubble in "Show hidden files and folders"
  • Untick (Uncheck) "Hide protected Operating System Files (Recommended)"
  • Untick (Uncheck) "Hide Contents of System Folders"

In your case navigate to:


When there look for the iexplore.exe file and right click on it. Then click Copy. After copying it, on every user account you want this to go to click Paste Shortcut. This will direct a link to the old IE6 Backup Installation, but if you are using Vista then this will not work. You will have to do these steps on every user account that you want to have the older version but I recommend using IE7 for all of them as it is more secure then IE6 :smile:
