IE should already be installed on your system. Start > All Programs > Internet Explorer Is it not there?

It is install but when viewing certain web pages like yahoo mail it will say that i am using a later version of IE and i need to upgrade to ie6 to veiw it properly. So i did dl IE6 and try to install it but it gives the message a newer version of IE is already install and cancles the Install. I have Uninstalled IE but it did not resolve the problem, so this is what I am trying to fix.

Are you getting the messages about updating IE when you use Mozilla or when you use IE. If it is when you are using IE then please post the link to the site that is giving you the message.

I get it in both when viewing certain web sites but here is a good example of what i get: I have windows set up to automaitcly update so i have no need to visit there web site for updates but when I do visit it gives me this message _____________________________________________________ Windows update website error message Thank you for your interest in obtaining updates from our site. To use this site, you must be running Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or later. To upgrade to the latest version of the browser, go to the Internet Explorer Downloads website I went to windows update just to get this message In IE ________________________________________________________________ I have downloaded the upgrade twice, when trying to install IE6 here is the message Setup has detected a newer version of Internet Explorer already installed on this system setup can not continue

Lets take a look at a HijackThis log before we proceed to make sure you don't have some type of malware messing with your system. If it is just a matter of reinstalling IE we shouldn't have much problem accomplishing that.

First, create a new folder on your desktop with a memorable name such as 'HijackThis'. Next, download HijackThis (scroll down the page to the 'HijackThis Quick Start' header) and unzip it to the new folder you just created. Make sure you unzip it, don't run it from the zip folder as it will not make proper backups if we need to fix anything.
Next, run HijackThis and click Do a system scan and save a logfile.
When the file opens, copy the entire contents by holding down Ctrl and pressing the 'A' key at the same time. Open a reply to this thread and paste the log into the reply by holding down the Ctrl button and 'V' at the same time.
Everyone gets specific instructions, disregard what you don't need.

Lets double check to make sure your user agent string isn't getting mangled before it gets to the server. Click this link and a page will come up displaying your user agent string. Copy it from that page and paste it here.

Why are you using msconfig for a selective startup? Also that r1 is accessing your modem/router.. I also see symantec orphaned files. What symantec product did you have?

bigfoot9090 I am looking into this. At the moment I am researching how MS gets the browser information (They use a combination of jscript and asp). How is your computer connected to the network. Is it connected directly to the router or do you go through another computer.

On this pc before i built my new one, it had been infected with a browser hijacker that was removed. I do not remeber the name of the program but it worked fine after it was fixed. It is connected on dial-up right now. when it was on bradband it gave me the same error message. what service or application transmits that info because in my firewall I have blocked lots of win programs from transmitting while online unless necassary. On my other pc I have pretty much the same setup.

Open a web browser. After the page loads then save your firewall traffic log and then clear it. Make sure it is set to monitor all traffic. Go to Windows Update. Check your traffic log for any blocked packets related to windows update and then allow that program to communicate. As far as I know it should only be IE but you may also have wscript.exe or cscript.exe. My packet monitor is broken st the moment (MS disabled raw sockets, I need to uninstall a hotfix).
