Well, the subject covers it quite nicely. I've got a windows 95 machine sitting in front of me that needs a re-install of IE.\

What's the problem I hear you ask - most of the installs I've found so far require Microsoft to provide the files - don't suppose anybody has a link to an all-in-one file that'll install a version of IE that'll work nicely in Win95?

Download times aren't much of an issue as I'm looking at a nice old 256 kB connection. with plenty of HD space to burn up

Any help would be appreciated as always

Many of the older PCWorld and other publications' free CD's have it - I think IE5.5 is about the latest that Win95 will take. Perhaps try the library if you don't have the old mags

Yeah - unluckily Microsoft have chosen not to support IE5.5 as well as I would like, and although they are releasing updates for it, I can't actually install it from most installers... I need one that doesn't use the net for it's files at all...

A web link to one would be the best thing, as our local library has already had all the cd's taken out of their copies of PC World.

Well if you buy me a beer next time you're up in Ak I'll send you one of my old CD's with a full install, if ya like. Drop me your postal addy to submit at zu dot co dot nz. Alternatively wait until I'm not too busy and I'll upload it to a server somewhere and you can download it from the address I supply - the latter is not the most reliable tho because of the greater potential of corruption from the various up/down loads it requires

Seeing as my chances of getting to Auckland are pretty slim, and my chances of having money for a beer are even slimmer, I could go for the latter option.. There's no major rush on it, but whenever you can... :-D

Thanks a bundle in advance.

Roger that. You'll still have to send me an email addy to send you the URL, as I don't want a dozen or more folks chewing into my bandwidth. Should have something up for you within 24 hours
