Busted IE6+IE7. Please Help

  1. Ok, hi guys, you'll know me from my other thread.

    Anyway...I managed to uninstall IE7 from control panel by using control panel. I also uninstalled the windows component for IE6.

    Now when I try to use the IE6Setup.exe file, I keep getting the following error message:

    "Setup has detected a newer version of Internet Explorer already installed on the system. (One blank line) Setup cannot continue."

    And also, when I try to reinstall through the windows components part of control panel, it doesn't fix it. However, I still have the executable iexplore.exe on the computer (on my desktop). It's saved all my bookmarks and such, yet when I click on one, the following error comes up:

    "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. create an association in the folder options control panel".

    However, when I click OK in the error box (which does look pretty bugged up, by the way - no title bar for it, no taskbar title, and the text in the error box higher than it should be), the bookmark opens up in a new IE6 window anyway.

    Can someone please help me fix these two problems? Help on the last thread was massively appreciated, and I would really appreciate the help again.

    EDIT: I tried creating a new URL shortcut on the desktop, and the same thing happens - check Problem3.jpg

    EDIT. I've attached three pics of the problems.

    Ok, I THINK I've fixed it, so this thread can be closed. Thanks a ton.
