hi ppl, anyways i've tried updating my old version of IE coz i need it to use the latest version of msn messenger, so i downloaded the file and tried to install however it never completes the installation, it gets up to about 91% and stops and says "setup was not complete try closing programs down and running set up again" or something along those lines, well i've tried that and well nothing else works so i'm not sure whats going on. any help you could give me i would be most grateful for thanks!

Try booting in to safemode to install it. Sorry, the only other thing I can think of is to press Crtl + Alt +Del and closing everthind other then:

Explorer
Run32 (Or something close to this)

Hope that this helps.

How much RAM do you have in your system? All these upgrades need a lot of memory to run and older systems sometimes need to at least double their memory to work well. When you add virus scanners and firewalls you need more memory too. Windows 95 will do just fine with 16mb, 98 will do OK with 32, but ME or fully upgraded 98se needs about 64mb. :tazz:

I have had the same problem. I found this article on the Microsoft website, I am going to try it today. It says that you can get this error message if a vector graphics rendering component is not installed. See if you have any luck. Let me know.

OR
I had the same problem with updating from IE5 to IE6. Can't remember
where I saw this, but it works.
Go to: My computer / tools / folder options / view
Select "show hidden files and folders"
Click "OK"
Go back to desktop. Right click on desktop/ click "new" to create a new
folder on your desktop. Name it "Old Uninstall" (without the brackets).
Go to: My computer / C / Program Files / Internet Explorer / Uninstall
Information
Click: Edit / Select all / Cut
Go back to your desktop and open the "Old Uninstall" folder you created.
Right click inside it, and click "Paste".
Go to set up for IE6 and install normally.
Should install everything now. If everything works, delete the "Old
Uninstall" folder on your desktop.
