Needing direct download link for Internet Explorer 6 with SP2

Hi Everyone;

        Unfortunately, when I ran IEFix as a possible troubleshooting tool for a corrupte IE 6 with SP2 browser, it uninstalled this browser instead of repairing.  In fact, when I restart this laptop, I get a message at the desktop indicating Internet Explorer 6 has been removed.  

          With this point in mind, could someone provide a direct download link for IE 6 with SP2?  It will be needed for the purpose of reinstalling IE back onto this laptop.  Incidentally, I currently have Mozilla Firefox on there now for internet surfing or browsing.  Can I leave it on there while reinstalling IE 6?

           I look forward to getting back what I accidentally uninstalled.

           Thank you

           George

The above link is for windows xp sp2.

You can download ie6 sp1 from micro$oft website:

Hello George,

You do not have to uninstall Firefox before installing or running IE6.

IEFix does repair on certain components of IE6. It should not uninstall it.  Not sure why the system is saying IE6 is missing.

Hope this helps!

GMartin--For all practical purposes there was no IE 6 SP2

I agree that IE 7 would be a better choice if you, indeed, have uninstalled IE6.

Hi Everyone;

       Thanks for correcting me about the confusion regarding the SP of IE 6.  I especially appreciate the suggestion to install IE 7 instead.  Earlier, I was able to download and install it successfully.  Everything runs fine now with the IE browser.

        Thanks again.
