Internet Explorer download.

Can some kind person remind me how to obtain downloads from Microsoft and save them to disc?

I have ploughed through the past threads and nothing I do seems to work. In fact I am now at the hair pulling stage. There is something I am doing wrong, or is that "not doing something right".

I want to update IE5 to IE6 on a Win 2000 system. The machine is not on the internet yet. (Cannot get it to access through my small network). Although the network part works.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, rather than download, why not buy a PC Mag which has IE6 on CD then Install from the CD. lol

That is a very good point. I will try and do that.

I was under the impression that Microsoft was no longer allowing magazine cover discs to carry their updates etc. For example:- PCA download area only leads to the setup file from MS.

Can you suggest a mag that Carry's such content? Will I find it on the PA Advisor cover disc?

Hi again, email me by clicking on my envelope - I will send you a magazine disc with IE6 on it.
Cheers. Well, it is nearly Christmas :-))

don't forget your full address.

Thanks Technotiger,

Email on it's way. Happy Christmas to you and yours as well.

(Is this the very first mention of Christmas on the Forum?)
