This is the 2nd time this has happen to me and I had to format to fix the problem. No amount of reinstalling, repairing or removing fixes the problem. I have reinstalled IE6.0 several times and reinstalled windows 98se over it’s self to no avail. I even went back to 5.5 with no luck.
That KB article says that the fix is only if you experience the problem after installing IEAK (Internet Explorer Administration Kit) which apparently is some sort of tool to bundle custom browser based software solutions. More info on IEAK can be found <A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ieak/default.asp" target="_new">HERE</A>
Did you install IEAK? If not, it doesn't look like that fix is for you, unfortunately.
