    Internet Explorer 4

    I'd like to install Internet Explorer 4 on an old computer that can't support IE5. Can anyone tell me where I can either download it or buy a CD?
    Thanks

    Leif -
    Did you try any of the links to actually download? They appear to be non-existant <img src=/S/smash.gif border=0 alt=smash width=30 height=26>

    Aaaargh - sorry. <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>
    I think I was fooled by the fact that they have the current date displayed - I took this to mean this was the update date.....
    All links seem to point back to the Microsoft site which, of course, now only offers IE5/6

    Right-ho - just done an exhuastive search (i.e. I'm exhuasted) and came across this <A target="_blank" HREF=http://ie40.infosel.com/default.htm>site</A> with a setup file that does download. It's in Spanish, I think, but found it thru Google which translated it for me.

    Re: Internet Explorer 4

    I think you will find that is the same link I posted earlier, which simply leads to a (now) non-existent MS link.
    Did you try following it through?

    I followed it and it does come up with file not found. Eventually - after following several 'Download now' screens!
