IE5 full download

  Mutant_Llama 11:56 29 May 2005

Can anyone recommend somewhere I can download a full version IE5 instead of the small setup file that requires you go online?

I have a laptop that requires IE5 to run some software but I have no modem for it, so plan to download to my main PC and burn it to CD. I plan on using IE5 as I *think* I am right in saying it is less demanding then v6? It is an old low spec PII laptop so the less demanding the better!

if you have any old isp setup discs kicking around you will find it on one

THanks for the response, but the given link is just for the setup file at 500kb, I was after the whole of IE5.

Don't have any ISP disks =/

Typical, I regularly bin loads of AOL ISP disks that seem to come with anything nowadays and when I actually need one I cannot find it =)

Ignore my link, its for the Mac, sorry.

Mutant_Llama, sorry about that link. I didn't try it myself, I just assumed it was the full version. I have now just given it go but, unfortunately, all I get is "your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded". My security settings are set to "Low"!!

IE5 is particular vunerable and it would be much better to use IE6. IE6 requires:

Computer with a 486/66-MHz processor or higher (Pentium processor recommended)

Windows 98:
16 MB of RAM minimum
Full install size: 11.5 MB

Windows 98 Second Edition:
16 MB of RAM minimum
Full install size: 12.4 MB

Windows Me:
32 MB of RAM minimum
Full install size: 8.7 MB

Windows NT® 4.0 with SP 6a and higher:

Windows 2000:

Windows XP:

Thanks for the responses, the laptop is not going to be used for internet access so I am hoping IE5 is fine.

Cheers sidecar, downloading it now! (and at 200KB a sec it finished before I typed this response!)
