[Crosspost to IE General]

A1. Yes.

A2. You can't uninstall IE6 in WinXP.

A3. No change.

A4. See A2 above.

You need a better "computer techniciain," one who doesn't have his head

After that date, computers running WinXP SP2 will NOT be offered any further
critical security updates, Automatic Updates will not work, and Windows
Update website will not be accessible until SP3 is installed.
