I usually come up with good ones...

Yes I do use Firefox (love it! am using it now)

The reason why I'm trying to get IE6 to work is that the Windows Update site stated I need it to continue updating Win98SE.

Have you tried downloading the IE setup program with Firefox and letting it run itself?

If not, try that....I just did and the set up downloaded fine...just trying to cover all the bases while I search knowledge bases for other possibilities... :tazz:

wannabe1,

Yes, I did try downloading with Firefox, to no avail.

Well, GTG... Getting late...

Will check here later to see if you have anything else for me to try.

Can't say enough how I appreciate your efforts in finding a solution.

Best regards,
JR

Hi Wannabe1,

Been awhile. Just checking, in case this was somehow forgotten. :tazz:

Thanks.

Hi jollyr...

Get this Microsoft download of IE6 SP1 and save it to the desktop to install later.

Go the Control Panel and open Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down to Internet Explorer, select it, and click "Remove". In the dialog box that appears, tick the radio button labeled "Repair" and click "Ok". Follow the on-screen instructions.

Let me know if the repair helps.

Hi Wannabe1,

There is no entry in Control Panel / Add-Remove Software for Internet Explorer (Isn't IE integraged into the OS for WIN98?). I can not find a means to remove or even repair IE.

Yes, IE is integrated in win98. It may be listed as Microsoft Internet Explorer. My 98 machine already has IE SP1 on it and it's listed that way...the updates are listed as simply Internet Explorer with the Q#. Let me do a little checking this morning.
