Today I bought the May edition PCAdvisor and used the cover CD to try and install IE6 on my computer. I am currently running IE 5.50 but need to upgrade to IE6 in order to access my credit card account online. The setup appears to go OK but at the end of the procedure there is a list of components that didn't install and one of them is the web browser. I have gone back to resume the setup several times and the result is always the same. The help button brings up a message indicating that some components might not be installed correctly because of lack of free disk space (I have loads) or errors while downloading. It indicates that some itmes might depend on related components installing correctly. I am flummoxed. Any ideas of what I can do to resolve this?
Thanks, Woodchip, but that didn't work either. However, I have now found the solution in a Newsgroup that I came across when looking at the Microsoft support site. For anyone else who is having the same problem and whose OS is ME, here is what you do: 1.Set your folder options to 'Show hidden files and folders'. 2. Create a temp folder named 'Old Uninstall' 3. Go to folder C:/Program Files/Internet Explorer/Uninstall Information. 4. Edit, select all and cut all files. 5. Open <Old Uninstall> and paste the files. 6. You will now be able to install all the troublesome components. After a few days, if everything works as expected, you can delete the <Old Uninstall> folder and its files.
