When doing a repair install of Windows 98/ME/XP IE7 must be uninstalled prior to doing the repair


Before attempting to do a repair install of Windows 98/ME/XP you must uninstall Internet Explorer 7. If you do not uninstall it then the resulting install will have a myriad of problems including Internet Explorer 6 not working correctly.

Microsoft has a knowledge base article on this for XP here:

How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if Internet Explorer 7 is installed

For those who are having problems browsing sites that expect IE6, Microsoft has provided a tool that allows you to make it appear as if you are running IE6 when using IE7. More info here:
