Do you have your java off?
Turn it on if so.

If you have I.E you will have to wait for someone else to help you.

Internet Explorer is too big to email. Here is a link to an article which tells you how to Download IE and save to disk instead of installing immediately. This way the IE install files are on the hard drive if you ever need to extract a file or do a complete reinstall. On the second page there are links to various versions or IE including 6.0

If you both have ICQ you can send it to her there if you both have cable possibly.
Best I recall the download isn't as long as the upload

Hi all,

lets review here you want to install IE6.0 over your IE5.5 sp? Right?

you have tried to run the IE repair tool option?

I just know that haste makes waste and you'll get no joy installing something good over something that's less than good.

Agreed?

I'll go look for another link where IE6.0 is also available, didn't Mosaic1 give you one I'll go back and look, I just got here 'ya know

Thanks DS


bigsis2u,
one more question... Do you have a proxy? If so I think you need to ask someone to help you make sure its set up properly. If not then go ahead & get ready to download IE6...

Hopefully if you clean your cache & then reboot & make sure your
items in start up are at a minimal ... then you can possibly get to this site & download it.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/ie6/default.asp

If you still can't get there ... then reinstall IE5.5 & then go back for IE6.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

might ask friends around home if they could burn you a copy to a CD as well..
Let us know !!
