    IE 6 can't download (6.0)

    I was using IE 5** and it began causing problems. Every so often I would get a General Page Fault or everything would lock up, I was unable to download any files (error msg. can't access this page) and most of the time when I hit the back button, I would have to refresh in order to view the page. I upgraded to IE 6, hoping that would fix the problem since I could not find a definitive answer to my problems. Needless to say, it did not solve the problems.

    I am open to any suggestions.

    (sigh) what operating system are you using? Only, it makes a considerable difference to the next step you need to take. Please tell us?

    Re: IE 6 can't download (6.0)

    I had a feeling it might have been that. Although some systems run IE6 under a 9x platform, it does not always work - but then, it's not meant to. I sometimes feel that the DOS and NT codebases are just too different. I usually suggest either upgrading to XP (where IE6 is supposed ro run) or reverting to IE4.
    Any other solution from a distance is bound to involve you in a great deal of wasted time and effort. You could of course, try your friendly local computer retailer...

    Sorry this is not very helpful.

    Re: IE 6 can't download (6.0)

    At home I'm running IE6 on Windows 98SE, without any more problems than might be expected from a Windows operating system... Downloading works just like it did with IE5.01SP2.

    No help, but for once I don't have a problem with something!

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    Re: IE 6 can't download (6.0)

    I upgraded my operating system to Windows 2000 PE. The problem with IE still persists. I have checked other computers on my small office network, wrote down all of the settings on their IE, then changed mine. The problem is still there.

    Is there a way to uninstall IE and start over from the beginning?

    Rick, try to repair or reinstall IE 6 and then install SP3 (which includes all previous Service Packs).

    It might fix your problem. Good Luck!
