Internet Explorer 5.5 upgrade to 6

Help required please. How do you upgrade to IE6 from 5.5 without the loss of all settings and favorites etc. and will the upgrade also change Outlook Express settings. The answer is probably easy to some of you but not to this Silver surfer.

You should be able to upgrade OK and retain all your favorites and settings. You can save your favorites by going to File>Import/Export and follow the Wizard, you can then save your Favorites in a file somewhere so you can re-import them if disaster strikes.

You can download it from click here however if your on dial up you might be better to install it off a PC magazine cover Cd. Upgrading should't affect your favourites or email setting athough backing up first is a good idea. If you want I can post you a recent cover Cd with IE6 on just mail me.
