Greetings, exdos!
  NT4 cannot accept IE greater that 5.5.  You can get IE5.5 or less from here

Full Versions of Internet Explorer

Best wishes, war1

You should use IE5.5 SP2, because it the lastest.  You can use earlier versions.

I keep recieving the message " a previous installation program was never completed. You will need to restart your computer to complete the installation before running Internet Explorer setup. Setup will now close" I have rebooted the server. The last thing i installed was MS KB824146 patch.

The error message comes from your incomplete install of IE6. Remove the old IE6 setup files from C:\ or C:\Windows or C:\Winnt.  Also, remove the startup shortcut in Start > Programs > Startup
