Unable to to do "critical updates" - the page I get directed justs says "thanks for visiting update - you need a windows operating system to use the update". I think my problem is scripting related? but thats only a guess. W98SE IEx6 I have re-insatlled IEx6 but to no change. I have also checked and compared cookie settings with a friends p.c. and I do not appear to have the option to enable cookies via IEX tools/options/security/Active x Any Ideas?
