I've been trying to update to IE 8 (I think I have IE 6) and each time it wants to install to one of 2 external hard drives I've got connected to my computer. I have no idea how to get it to install to my hard drive. Any thoughts?

EDIT:

So it dawned on me to disconnect the drive and try and install it and it worked perfectly. If admin wants to cancel topic go right ahead :)

That's what I was going to suggest. Its odd it wanted to go to an external since it is upgrading IE which is wrapped in to the OS that is on the C drive.

Glad you got it figured out.

I think I would have realized I needed to disconnect the drive sooner if I had more than 3 hours sleep last night. At least I hope I would :)

Anyway...I found a folder in the drive, looks like its got Windows type stuff in it that I can't move to the trash. Have no idea how it got there but I started another thread in the OS section to see what someone says. The drive is fine but there's this weird folder. :)

If the folder ends in .bak just delete it from the external.
