because I can't get 6.0 to load all the components because apparently I have installed and uninstalled it in the past?

try this as Hell is more likely to freeze over before a totally new version of IE6 appears....load the IE6 CD and when you get to the custom/typical page choose typical and tick all the options except languages and media player. Continue and reboot when the load has ended.

Did you mean 'chose custom'?

I have done this but it tells me that certain components could not be installed (or words to that effect).

When I do a Windows update it tells me that there is a critical update (service pack) available. I asume that it is telling me this because I haven't managed to install everything.

I suppose I should leave it as it seems to work, i.e. Outlook Express and Internet Explorer seem to work OK.

It's just frustrating that I can't install what Microsoft consider to be a critical update.

MS Said....

Lets hope for it.

The Critical Updates is to eliminate any security or other problems in the current version of IE which you are running.

You should download and install them; downloading the latest Service Pack also includes all updates, patches etc over the previous few months.

Yes, I know, but why put up with IE if you don't have to?

but when it comes to the installation I get a message saying that some items cant be installed for some reason.

I assume this means that I need them but it wont work rather than it tried to instal them but I already have them.....if you get my drift.
