SP2 and Internet explorer probs

  Highland Guy 20:45 16 Aug 2006

Hi All, I have been trying to update a friends pc with service pack 2, the installation goes well everything works except internet explorer it just keeps coming up with page not found regardless of the web address.

If you uninstall sp2 everything works ok again!!!!

The sp2 file I am using was downloaded from a techie website so should be ok??????

I have tried to get it from microsoft but it appears you have to use windows update to get it,but as my friend only has dial up i was wanting to download it for him and burn it to disc.

I have sp2 installed myself could I copy this to disc and install this way?

Many thanks for any help

some problems with IE occur if you don't set up an internet connection and access the net with a working IE before installing a newer version - not saying it's your problem, but it used to cause problems during the win98 update process

click here This is where I downloaded it from when it first came out and have used it a few times on friends machines back then with no problems, I think I still have a copy of it on my backup drive now.
