Is there anyway I could get rid of IE5.5 and go back to 5.0?

When I visit UBB, read a msg then go back to the listings... all the red folders are gone, it resets the cookie :P

I'm running win2k pro.. think I could just reinstall it (don't want to reformat)

It can be uninstalled, however it's a bit dicey. Here are the steps.
1. Uninstall 5.5
2. Hack the registry by eliminating any reference to 5.5 by going thru H_Key_Local_Machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows
3. Download the new registry cleaner from Microsoft and run it.
4. re-install 5.0

No guarantees made, as MS loves to hide little snippets of code.

Hope this helps
