    Have been told we need to have IE5.5 or better in order for online forms to
    work (renewing anti-virus subscription) The PC is a 4 year old Compaq
    (student use) running Win98SE and presently IE5. Have IE6 (SP1) on a mag
    cover CD. Do I just install this over present installation. Are all
    favourites and settings in OE6 (which I assume is included) kept intact. Any
    hints on upgrading browser appreciated......like, does IE6 interact OK with

    You should be OK and also IE 6 will add itself to the Add Remove
    Programs list and if you go to remove it offers a repair option so it
    can be repaired as sometimes the 1st,"Upgrade" to it can have a few
    faults.Check the Mags Cds folders you may find a copy of IE 5.5 which
    I prefer.
    Also if you got any free ISP Cds though the post(NOT AOL) you can open
    these up and find copies of IE 5.5 and IE 6 on them to use and can
    then un-brand then using this,
    HTH :)

    Thanks for that...I have often wondered why IE5 was not in Add/Remove in
    98SE......we are running IE6 with XPHome on our main computer so having the
    same version IE on both computers will be less confusing. The mag CD I
    intend using is from PC User (latest Aust. issue)

    Go to the windows update site for a non hijacked version.
    Any current items such as favorites should remain intact.
    Before you do though, you may want to move your OE stuff to another folder,
    then use the file/import messages wizard to recover with. Including your
    news settings.
