can this be downloaded in full of MS? is the MS corporate site still going?

unfortunatly the 5.5sp2 downloader/installer won't let me download because i have ie 6 installed. 5.5sp2 was on pcworld disk but i think its the only disk i don't have ....argghhhh ;-)

Congrats on making it past the 1K mark.
If you've got 6 installed I don't think its gonna let you. You could always try removing 6 and then doing it. I've got it at home somewhere, but that'll be of little use to you!
AFAIK, You'll need to uninstall 6 and go back to 5 (Provided you're not on WinXP) then go back to 6 again, using one of the cover discs.
(Unless you wanna download it yourself?!)

I got this from Tipworld the other day, maybe it is of some help:

Microsoft Internet Explorer for all Windows Systems

When you install Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 from the
Microsoft Site, you'll get the correct version of IE 6 for
your system. However, if you happen to be currently running
Windows XP, but want to download files for a system running
Windows 98, you'll have trouble finding those files.

This is what you do: go to the Download.Microsoft.com site
at the link following this tip. Download just the setup
file to a folder (let's say you choose c:\IE6). Now, close
your browser and click Start|Run, type in (using the
quotation marks as shown)

"c:\IE6\ie6setup.exe" /c:"ie6wzd.exe /d /s:""#E"

and press Enter.

Setup will open a dialog box from which you can make your
system choices.

Click here to download the setup file from Download.Microsoft.com.

Hey tweak'e, you've passed your first K! Welcome aboard! :D

On second thoughts, maybe that won't be any good because it's for IE 6. But I wonder if you can change IE 6 to IE 5.5 SP2?
