The Internet Explorer is currently available in the version 6.0. To check your version, click on Help and then About Internet Explorer. However, if you are currently running Internet Explorer 5.01, I recommend that you stay with it. Just install the service packets SP1 & 2 for the Internet Explorer 5.01. Internet Explorer 6.0 has been known to cause problems on many systems. Nobody has yet figured out why it works wonderfully on some and terribly on others. If you already have it and it is running fine, then great! If you have got it and it is causing problems, then try to downgrade by starting the Control Panel (Click on Start, then Settings, Control Panel) and clicking on Add/Remove Programs. Find the entry Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 and Internet Tools, highlight and then click on the Add/Remove button . In the next window select the choice Restore the previous Windows configuration. So if you don't have it, leave it. You might save yourself a lot of hassle. It might, however, mean that you may not be able to access certain pages. A lot of the websites have been optimized to run with the advanced features of Internet Explorer 6.0
Keep your Internet Explorer updated. Microsoft provides an easy to use site for this purpose that checks for updates and even notifies you, if you wish, that new updates are available. Click here to go to the update page from here. Click on Product Updates and then allow the Microsoft Server to offer you a list of updates not installed on your computer. Always install the security and critical updates. Recommended updates for Direct X or Virtual Machine should also be regularly installed. The rest is a matter of choice. If the installed application is working fine, then don't update. If you are having trouble, then update. One piece of advice. Don't close the update page window while downloading. It might cause a disruption of the updating process. Always close down all other applications while updating. That way, should the system crash, you don't lose any unsaved work.
