The other day, I logged onto Windows Update (running 98SE); & the scan told me I needed critical updates & security patches relative to Internet Explorer & Outlook Express 6.0 (Service Pack 1.) I downloaded & installed, which was taking a bit longer than usual...& then I noticed that it looked like the full versions of both IE & OE were installing. That must have been the case, because when the process was over, I had icons on my desktop (& also, during the download, the dialog had read: "Downloading IE 6.0, Downloading OE 6.0, etc.) Thing is...I already had version 6!

Has anyone else experienced this? Is a full download & install part of SP1?

I also noticed that since, I have been not been able to open e-mail attachments (the envelope icon is grayed out.)

Anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks in advance,

mark4man

Personally, I have no use for IE6-SP1. After upgrading to SP1, I was losing some of the graphics on many sites, I uninstalled SP1 and they came back. It's the one upgrade I avoid. :)

I have no idea, I applied SP1, and many sites would have one or more graphics missing. I took it off, and the problems disappeared. I saw several other people talking about the same issue in the W2K newsgroup, so I figured that it was a real bug. I apply the security patches and just leave SP1 where it is, on the Microsoft website. :)

Well in a way it is but it'l be taylored to fit what ever your upgrading from .

>>>Downloading IE 6.0, Downloading OE 6.0, etc.) Thing is...I already had version 6! <<<
