    Wrong Info. Listed.

    Sytem Information lists the wrong version for Internet Explorer. It shows Version 5.6 ( the previous one), while I'm running 6.0.

    Can it be corrected and if so, how? Step-by-step if you please.

    Did NOT know that IE can as a "Version 5.6", are you sure that it was not version 5.5?

    Try running the repair from the "Add and Remove Programs" of the Control Panel on IE 6.0.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I didn't know it either, but that's what it reads, checked again to be sure. The previous version was 5.5 SP1. I repaired it several times and the incorrect version number remains the same. Have to try something else.

    I don't know how "reliable" the SysInfo app in Win98 is. Would you try something that may do you a favor too? Download a copy of Belarc Advisor and install/run it. It's <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> and provides an excellent report about your system, including installed software. It would be interesting to see if IT reports the correct version.

    Big Al, I've had Belarc for over a year and it lists my version correctly every time.

    Hi Al:
    I'm curious. I have version 5.1g. The "new" version is 5.1L. Do you know if there is any reason to replace Belarc with it's newer version. I'm still running Win 98SE.
    Thanks,

    Hi, Phil ~

    I have been a long time supporter of BelArc and have run both versions and notice no discernible difference. However, I am using XP. Other than simply having the most recent version, I see no reason to replace your current version considering there are no published history benefits at the BelArc site.

    Hasn't been too long ago someone (here in the Lounge, I think) recommended updating to the latest but I can't remember why. Haven't bothered to search for it, since it's so easy to download and upgrade - I am on 5.1k but have no need yet to rerun. I think the feeling was the newer versions to a better job of displaying installed software.

    Hope you don't take this wrong, Gloria, but given MS's penchant for getting it wrong, I think I would write off Sysinfo as "misinformed." Unless of course something is amiss with operation......

    I agree with you 100%. Leave well enough alone is the best thing to do. It's not bothering me, so I won't bother it. (tee hee).
