    I am running Win95 and IE5.5 My IP has an upgrade that I cannot download because it requires a minimum of Win95B and IE 6. I have looked on the
    Microsoft site (which is very confusing) and not found a download for either
    95B or IE6. Appreciate any comments.

    95B was a seperate operating system to purchase I beleive, basically known as OSR2 I think.
    IE 6 will not work with win95, minimim of win98 per microsoft

    Exactly as BrianF says, explorer 6.0 will not work with windows 95, , it's possible though to upgrade your 95a to 95b but you will need the 95b disks and it's tricky:

    95 OSR2 Upgrade

    You'd be better off just upgrading to 98 or keeping the 95a & explorer 5.5, that's fine the way it is. What is the problem download? Maybe there is a workaround.

    This is cool:
    Windows95 OSR2

    That's the original install OSR2, not an upgrade, for $20 ish, it couldn't possibly get any better,
