    Hi. I have IE6 or so it says when I click the about IE in thehelp menu. What I'd like to know is, why when I'm watching something like an online virus scan run or checking my temporary internet files are they shown as being IE 5 content?

    IE6 is a continuation of the IE 5 "family" of browser.
    There are fundamental differences with IE versions below 5.
    MS chose to continue with the folder naming convention started with IE5 even after loading/upgrading to higher versions.
    Can't say it worries me.
