Since installing the MS SR-1 "upgrade" to Office 2000, I can no longer download any file from the net in IE5. Error received is usually "Cannot Display this Page".  NT4.0, SP6a, IE5.01.  MS Web site is no help, I have searched till my fingers are raw. Ideas???  I have seen referances to this on several e-newletters but no links to a fix.

Is HTTP 1.1 enabled in IE tools / interet options / advanced ?
This is the only version that properly supports HTML push/pull.

Since this is NT you should have the reqd rights to download.

Also chweck if HTTP1.1 is enabled as already commented.Also I think some files are conflicting between the service packs offered that may not be compatible with the IE5 which came much earlier than SR1
