Does .NET 2003 require IE6?

P: n/a
Ther reason I ask is that the .NET install overwrote my perfectly
working IE 5.5 SP2 install with the buggy IE 6, and I'm not very
happy about it...lots of problems.

The release notes say NOTHING about this, and the install DID NOT
ask me if I wanted to.

If .NET is OK with 5.5, I'll be removing 6.0 as fast as I can
open Add/Remove programs...

Hi,

This page states that IE 5.01 or better is required:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframewo...s/default.aspx

I would seriously recommend upgrading to 6.0 if you're doing .NET
development. As I recall, some features such as No Touch Deployment only
work properly with 6.0. What bugs are you encountering with IE 6.0? Did you
install the IE 6.0 service packs and patches using Windows Update?

I've seen the sort of slow down when network (or other resources) cannot be
found, one symptom of this is when pressing windows key and R, the run box
takes an age to appear.

Yep, sure did...

The biggest problem is the "slowdown" issue I've been trying to resolve
in the IE6.general NG-

after several hours time at the workstation, usually with IE6 open,
get a HUGE systemwide slowdown (menus take 4-5 sec to pop, apps take
10X longer to launch) that WILL NOT clear unless I do a restart.

Mem usage OK/Paging OK/AntiVirus OK/%CPU no more than usual.

No disk subsystem issues/no events logged.

It's like traveling back in time to the old 486 days.

Something appears to be bottlenecking the system, but whatever it
is, it's not grabbing the CPU, and it sure as hell started AFTER

installing IE6.

There is one other possibility, and that is MDM.EXE, the Machine Debug
Manager,
which was NOT present before the .NET install. But it's not logging
anything, and stays rock solid at 00:00 CPU time, like it's not doing
anything at all, so I don't think that's it.

Willing to experiment and try to resolve this, but it's really beginning to piss me off.

W2K/SP4, etc if it matters.

I know, this has happened to me too, but it's not
the case this time :-)

All networked machines are here, under my direct control,
and none are offline...
