We can't get Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1.

We must salvage these files.
This is a package which contain Internet Explorer 6 SP1 and Outlook Express 6 for Windows 2000/XP in Italian.
This is the full package of IE6
This is the package of IE 6 SP1 for Windows 98 in Italian.

IE6SITES.DAT points to the files.
I have the last full set, correctly dated, of IE6SP1. Not sure if I would be allowed to upload "somewhere"... I do, however have a Website on my own PC - Private access, of course.

It would be very nice if you provided the direct links because you should be still able to download them through the Wayback Machine Are your links different than the ones listed by bristols?
By the way, the CABs were not only for 9x/ME/2K but also for XP Gold (which is not supported any more though).

FYI -this one works -

Don't you mean to store them on several different media types, just to be sure you can get them later. I personally put things like this on more than one HDD and then burn more than one CD/DVD. Then if I'm really paranoid, take and put copies in the safe deposit box at the bank.

I'm going to host all Windows 2000 related updates in one place later so they will be accessible even if M$ removes them from their servers.

I'm worried that I may not be able to download everything before it becomes unavailable. Time is running out...
Edit: At the moment the most important update which is gone is Win2k Update Rollup 1

If you still want to install Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1, you will have to use the Internet Archive Wayback Machine and copy the link above into the Wayback Machine search bar. The end result is this: http://wayback.archi...US/ie6setup.exe
The files that I linked to are in US English.
Microsoft has been phasing out support for older browsers, including Internet Explorer 7 which recently had its Mainstream Support retired along with Windows Vista and Office 2007 earlier this year. I don't know if the Windows Update even works on Internet Explorer 6 on Windows 2000, older versions of Windows XP or the original release of Windows Server 2003. If it still does, then Windows Update will most likely not work 100% correctly.
Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9 will only be fully supported until 13 January 2015 when Windows 7 leaves Mainstream Support. I suspect that by the time Windows Server 2003 is out of support in July 2015, the Windows Update website maybe decommissioned completely.
I'm hoping that someone will provide instructions on how to install Windows 2000 as installing it from scratch can become a serious limitation. After the installation, I will see if Windows Update still works or not. I still have it on one of my USB hard drives, btw.

Oh, goody! "HotFix By Request"...
This appears to be a massive effort. Good luck! All I have is all of the English from WUD.ULZ and AutoPatcher (and I see NO "By Request" since usually sent in an email).
Hmmm... found this - has some QFE's.
edit - above search for RollUp gave a sub-directory in first hit.
note: not cross-checking - just searching...

Fortunately all hotfixes by request (HBRs) are already downloaded (5000 files) The problem is with some of the removed security updates for other languages, especially less popular like ARA or HEB

edit - keep an eye on prev. link - will add anything useful/or-not above
