View Full Version : install ie6.0 over the top of ie 5.5 or not??

Personally I prefer Mozilla, but my brother wants to upgrade to IE6.0 from IE 5.5. Is it advisable to install IE6.0 over the top of IE5.5., or should 5.5 be uninstalled (I have a felling you can't uninstall 5.5?) before rebooting and installing IE6.0?

Install over the top - even if you can uninstall IE5.5, there's really no need to, unless you're having problems.

Yeah run Mozilla 1.1 myself can understand your feelings... But WTH

Not sure what operating system you have but 'normally' you can install IE6.0 as an 'upgrade' i.e. over-the-top of IE5.x

Note after you have installed IE6.0 I strongly suggest you install the IE6 Service Pack 1 (update fixes 'many... but not necessarily all... security 'holes').

Cheers, Babe.

Thanks for your suggestions. I have Win98SE, while my brother has WinMe. I'll follow your advice and also install the patch as well.
