Is there a not so painful way to delete IE 6 off an XP machine. I have
done research that requires registry hacks and I would like to know if
there is just an easier way.

Nobody here was wondering why you are a Mac user, mainly because nobody
knew.. and now that we do know, I guess that it is business as usual..

Why would people wonder why you are a MAC user? We don't care if you use
a MAC. You asked a question about XP, you got the answer. Simple as that.

this is not possible to delete IE 6.0 from Windows OS, I would question
you, why you want to do so ?

NO! Microsoft has tightly integrated IE 6 into XP. They never want you to
be able to easily remove it and only since they lost several "anti-trust"
lawsuit, they are now allowing you to remove the icons.

nope! you will have to remove the registry entries. but why bother?
just download firefox and set it as your default web browser. you will
need IE when its time for your windows updates.
