I'm fully aware of the exploits which are associated with using Internet Explorer. That awareness is what fuels my concern in wishing to confirm that I have installed all of the updates needed. Avoiding the use of IE may be a solution for some, and it is not a solution which suits my needs (I write HTML & create Computer Graphics. It is important for me to view the HTML and graphic files just as those visiting the will see them, whether they may be using IE, FireFox, Opera, or NetScape etc ect ect.) Thanks, as the attempt at an offer of help is appreciated, just the same, Juice Daddy. If you do
have a solution to offer regarding the issue which I am
attempting to remedy, it would be appreciated, even more so.
I'm AM interested in solutions which will allow me to download and install updates. I'm NOT interested in entering a debate regarding the pros and cons & risks associated with various browsers.
I know that the updates are commonly referred to as SP1 & SP2.
Another question which I will include now, as it has only just occured to me: Does SP2 overwrite SP1, and then take on the name of "Windows XP SERVICE PACK 2" ?
Edited to add:
I am running IE Version: 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 . Some of the reading I've done today now brings up the question as to whether this version of IE actually requires a need for downloading and installing SP2. I'm wondering whether this IE version may have fixed the issues which require SP2, especially since the phrase 'sp2' is included in theversion name. Hmm ... anyone???
