Problems downloading CRITICAL UPDATES

Hello. (Cool site - thanks!)

My operating system died last week (5/15) and just had a new one installed (Windows ME, 18.6 GB, 11.8 GB free). All my programs and files were copied to the new system.

I checked Microsoft Windows Update (5/24) to see if I needed any updates and it said "Critical Update" Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (Windows 98, Windows ME).

But...when selecting Install - it downloads the update and then I get error messages. "Setup was not able to install all the components. Please close all applications and try running setup again". Did that. Then got "A previous installation has pending work requiring a reboot. Setup will now close." Rebooted system. Kept getting these messages over and over. :tazz:

I removed the setup from the start up programs. Removed the files. Even went to the registry and removed the hotkey (pending installations) for this.

Should I NOT install this? It doesn't seem to install anyway. I don't really use IE, I use Firefox. Thanks. Sorry for the long post.
