    IE 6 download (IE 6)

    Hi All,
    I have IE 6 at home but don't want to install sp1 through my ISP as I have dialup. Where can I get the update files so I can burn a cd at work and install at home?

    John,

    Go to SP1 Update

    You can also go to the regular Windows Update and click on Windows Catalog on the left side, for other files and patches,

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I've got win98. Anyway, the only thing that the download downloads is the downloader (say that three times fast...). I want the complete download and cab files so I can load it from CD rather than my unreliable dialup. If I use the T1 at work and burn the CD, I'll have a quicker more reliable install at home.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Phil Rabichow on 10-Oct-03 16:23. to add last paragraph)</P>Here's the link to Win 98 updates. They have a link near the top for IE updates. I believe that you get the full downloads there, but I haven't tried it. If you use it, would you post back with the results?

    Whoops! Should have checked sooner. I followed all the links & what I got was an instruction to download the setup file & then the rest of the download would start. That's not what you're looking for. Maybe someone else can jump in.

    Well, I gave in and set aside a couple of hours to do the update through my ISP dialup.

    Hi Lonnie:
    Thanks for posting this. I will peruse this & hopefully download all the patches for future use. I've updated my system regularly (Win98 SE), but since support will end, it's nice to have these.
    Cheers,
