Hmm, I would try doing ctrl+alt+del, and closing everything except explorer and systray, then doing the updates from there.

Well, if you hit Control Alt and Delete on your keyboard at the same time in 98, it will bring you up a list of programs that are running. You can then select them and hit the close button. Do that with everything listed EXCEPT "explorer" and "systray" then open IE and try doing your update again.

Ouch, try going to "search" under the start menu.

Search in "MY Computer" for "*.tmp" and delete EVERYTHING that comes up.

Then try to update again.
