Somehow i lost my version 5.5 so I tried to install IE6 from a CD, of which i have several. It gets to about 70% then stops. I've tried disabling Norton antivirus and tried shutting down just about everything that's memory resident. I've tried a different CD, I've tried downloading the individual files to my HD first, but absolutely everything just gives the same failed result. Furthermore i can't re-install IE5 either, it just tells me a higher version is already installed (!). Can anyone please help?
I've been doing that all along, and it doesn't help unfortunately. In case it is relevant, I had no trouble at all downloading and installing netscape 6.2 and 7.1 So what am i doing wrong? In addition, before each attempt, I erase every trace of IE that I can find by searching on windows explorer.
