    IE 6.0 won't install (IE 6.0 from 5.5)

    OK this is frustrating already. I went to install IE 6, downloaded the minimal installation file no problem, and clicked on it only to get a message saying that another program installation had work to complete and I needed to reboot. I rebooted, (both hard and soft) but still the same message. I ran McAfee Quick Clean, and still the same message. Any ideas?

    Did you have your anti-virus stuff and other programs shutdown? When I was doing my d/l..it stated that all programs must be off to complete proper installation/setup.
    Just a thought.

    Your problem could be due to the use of McAfee which does not yet support IE 6.0. See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://forum.mcafee.com>Mcafee forum</A> for more info. Although I didn't see your specific problem, a quick glance at the Active shield message, produced a very clear statement from the McAfee support team that IE 6.0 is not supported and instructions on how to restore IE 5.5

    Re: IE 6.0 won't install (IE 6.0 from 5.5)

    I have tried to turn everything off - thanks for the suggestions - but still no go. I have Netscape 6.1 installed and I'm wondering if there may be conflicts there. It's really no big deal, but I like having two browsers for the 2 different users here, it keeps everything separate. 5.5 works ok so I probably will just forget the upgrade....but its a new toy, ya know!! PS I really like Netscape 6.1 A lot more stable than the beta, and a lot faster than IE 5.x in my subjective opinion

    Well I'm not sure what I did but I installed IE 6.0 this morning. Ran a couple of diagnostics that apparently fixed whatever confict was the problem, so now it's on to the threads about how IE 6 stacks up. (I still like Netscape, though)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>Edited by DaveA on 30-Aug-01 14:08.</P>Added link code

    <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15> I d/l 6.0 for daughter the other day..go to use her computer today - NO 6.0!
    I shutdown all running programs (after going here to original link for d/l)...started everything ok..then statement that some components weren't able to be installed...I even uninstalled the original 6.0 for a fresh start..still the same statement re components.
    Final thing I did was to read the Help on this..it said to contact <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/directory/productsupportoption.asp>http://support.microsoft.com/directory/pro...pportoption.asp</A> did that - couldn't get thru as far as the support.
    Now what? Am back using 5.5SP2.
    Suggestions, PLEASE <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>

    Don't know whether you'll laugh or cry to hear others (me!) having similar problems 6 months after you........

    Since that day of fun and pain, I haven't had any problems using IE 6!
    Just remember to have all running programs/screensavers,etc turned off when d/l IE6.0, or actually any update/software... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    Good Luck.
