    The document is entitled "How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP
    if Internet Explorer 7 is installed". Would doing a repair installation of
    Windows XP get rid of IE7, which is what I am trying to learn how to do? I
    don't think so, as the first thing it tells me to do in that document, in
    the introduction, is uninstall Internet Explorer 7! How?

    I know a PC isn't a Mac but could I just delete the Internet Explorer folder
    that's in the Programs folder to get rid of it? Then install IE6?

    The KB article does give specific instructions for you. It requires you to
    verify the Windows version and then proceed accordingly. If you have WinXP SP2
    installed, the procedure you need to follow is defined under the section titled:

    If Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is installed on the computer

    In your case, you'll have to use the Recovery Console to uninstall IE7. See the
    details under this subsection:

    If Internet Explorer is not listed in the Currently installed programs list,
    follow these steps:

    Note: If you have an OEM PC which wasn't supplied with a WinXP installation CD,
    you probably won't be able to access the Recovery Console, so you may still be
    out of luck.
