    Hello eddie,

    I am just not able to access Windows Update - haven't been able to for ages. Have posted about it on the site before. I get a "done" message "but with errors on page" and then an error script. Anyway, re security fixes not being accepted because "IE6 need to be installed". I do have IE 6, as I said, and here is the version:

    6.00.2800.1106.

    Thanks for any light you can throw on this matter.
    Penny

    Okay

    It says:

    The fix for this issue was included in Windows XP Service Pack 1, and in Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1.

    Now, you have IE6 SP1:

    6.00.2800.1106 Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (Windows XP SP1)

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q164539

    So, it looks like you should have the update already. But, you should be able to check either via the Help again, or

    To verify that the patch has been installed on the machine, open Internet Explorer, select Help, then select About Internet Explorer and confirm that Q328676 is listed in the Update Versions field. Alternatively, from Outlook Express select Help, then select About Outlook Express and confirm that the msoe.dll matches the version called out in Q328676.

    Hello eddie,

    Internet Explorer gives: Update version SP1; Q313829

    Outlook Express seems to match the 6.00.29800.1106.

    Thanks,
    T2:)
