We analyse the restrictions from experimental data on high-energy neutrinos from the sun due to the annihilation of cold dark matter. We pay particular attention to uncertainties in the neutrino-, particle- and astro-physics. We conclude that photinos and higgsinos cannot be ruled out by the present IMB data. However, it appears safe to say that muon sneutrinos are not a viable candidate.
