Hi... I'm trying to download IE6 on my Win2K SP2 and Windows Update tells me it cannot connect to Internet ("get sure you are connected to the Internet").

I can browse, download, use ICQ, Messenger, etc. Everything works with my connection but Windows Update.

Any ideas?

You can also update Internet Explorer from here.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp

Can you post any other error information? Is this a popup dialog box, and error on the Windows update page, etc...?

Hi... that was the place I started to download.
try it again, but getting the same error: "

Setup was unable to download information about available installation sites.
Setup my have been unable to use yuor current proxy server settings. lick Adavnced if you know your proxy settings.
The network may be busy; you can retry now or if you continue having this problem, please try Setup at a later time."

To connect to my ISP I don't need to specify a proxy.


Thanks... another idea?
Do you know where do I can get IE6 without the Windows Update (on Internet please.)

Go to the following site to get the install file for IE6:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/ie6/default.asp?FinishURL=%2Fdownloads%2Frelease%2Easp%3Freleaseid%3D32210%26PopList%3D2%26redirect%3Dno

You should be able to run this and begin the setup process.

Open Internet Explorer> Tools> Internet Options> Connections> LAN Settings.

Make sure that Proxy Server is not checked. As a matter of fact, make sure that nothing is checked there.

Couple of options.
You can go to Microsoft Download Center and dowload IE6 from there.
Also you can try to fix the the Winndows UPDATE ActiveX.
Go to C:\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files or whatever you installed the Windows folder and delete the CV3 Class object.
Restart and try again.

Did you try to add more memnory in your Temp Inter store settings?

You can try this, open your IE, goto 'Tools' > 'Internet options' > 'Settings', you should be able to see a scroll bar on the menu, add more memory by moving the pointer to the right (maybe slightly more than 1000MB), than try again.

if that still cannot work, go to the same menu, but this time goto 'view object', delete the 'CV3 Class' and restart your IE, it should work.

Thanks for your help... give me a couple of days to test your ideas and I'll be back.

Psx2sg: Thanks, but don't post any answer again because it blocks the question and nobody can add further comments. If needed, I can accept a comment as an answer.
