Remove IE8 8.0.6001.18702CO and go back to 8.0.6001.18702

    Question

  • We have some XP based machines failing with certain apps in IE8, all the ones that fail have IE8 version 8.0.6001.18702CO, that ones that function have 8.0.6001.18702, I understand what the CO is, I just need to get rid of it. When I un-install IE8 and go back to IE6 then re-install IE8 using just the plain vanilla download from Microsoft, the version still comes back as 8.0.6001.18702CO !  How do I get rid of this?

  • Hi,

    "CO" means that this IE version has been admin-customised for a corporate environment by an administrator, using the Microsoft Internet Explorer Administration Kit.

    If the Windows XP clients are actually in a domain, you will need to contact your domain administrator regarding this issue.

    Regards

  • As I said in my original post, I understand what CO is. I am also the domain administrator. My question is how to get rid of it. My efforts so far to remove it have been un-successful.

  • Hi,

    Did you download the installation file of IE 8 from this webpage: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=43?

  • Yes, that is where I got my plain generic IE8 install file.

  • I'm having exactly the same issue and I am also a Dom Admin. Did you ever manage to resolve this? Thanks.

  • I'm having the same issue too with the version 8.0.6001.18702CO, how ever my issue is even stranger.  I've been able to verify that some machines on site, with that version, do render the pages correctly.  We've forced the browsers into Compatibility View by adding the custom header to iis 6's configuration "X-UA-Compatible=EmulateIE7".  However, some of the browsers even ignore the forced compatibility view???  What on earth? Anyone have any insight on this?
