Is There A Direct Link To 98se Ie Sp1 Download?

40 posts in this topic

Personally, I think opera is the best choice.  Throw out IE, don't use it, don't care about it, don't update it, delete all shortcuts to it.....  and use an alternative browser for everything.

Download 3.5 MB once, and get a mail client, chat, and browser.  This browser has a good interface for beginners, has every possible feature you can think of for experts, has an infinitely customizable and extendable UI, can be voice-controlled, and more.....  It has thousands of features and easy-usability facilities that keeps growing softly on you as you use more of it.  And the best part is that even if you forget to update it for 4 years, you will still be safer than a stone - it literally has almost no security problems.  If you need more reasons to use opera, I have posted hundreds on this topic all over this forum and in other places.

Good call prathapml. Best way to get rid of IE is to use IEradicator. It safely removes IE under Win9x systems.

I'm currently beta testing Opera 8.0 beta 3. looks good. should be something when it reaches the final release. Firefox is also a good alternative to IE.

Well it appears that you were insulted by my frustration and constructive criticism. That was not my intent. All these links are confusing to the novice, like you were some 13 years ago. I am trying to learn and I do appreciate your site and the service pack as I have recommeded it on Scot's Newsletter and to other people I know who use Win98SE. Thanks for your help.
Actually I got over that part where I feel insulted by something like this many years ago, that's why I still keep my web site up, and even have a feedback page. :)

What you need to understand from what I said before is that I try to help people like u who are just learning about their computers all the time, and I do explain these things over and over all the time [without getting frustrated nor insulted], and all this for free in my spare time, because [as you may have noticed] computing + helping others is only 1 of my hobbies.

And part of this is also to tell you that if you don't find what u need at my web site, you can always look somewhere else, and I even provide you with links to other help sites I consider to be the best in the business.

Well let's see if this will change my status around here.  This is a direct link that I found (by the hand of God) while trying to download the big 77.5 MB file again. . . which was another flop:

http://www.greenapple.com/support/software/browsers/

application: Internet Explorer v6.0sp1 July 2003 Update

platform: Win98/Me/2000/XP

file: ie60sp1july.exe

size: 47.1MB (48235520)

date: 07/06/03

I was able to download this file without the connection turning off.  Now that I have contributed to the forum . . . could I please get to you give me the direct links in a reply for the 10 updates (in their install order) you said are for Win 98SE - IE 6 as I don't seem to get the same number as you?

http://www.greenapple.com/support/software...ie60sp1july.exe

I had a link to the GreenApple file for a short while, and if I may it was by the "hand" of Google [who some may see as God :)] that I found it, but as you may have noticed, that file is only 47 MB, not 77 or 78, which means it does not contain ALL MS IE 6.0 SP1 files, which means not all Win32 [Win32 is general term to cover all MS Windows 32-bit OSes = these include 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, 2003 + Longhorn] users are able to install IE 6.0 SP1 offline [because this is the offline Full Setup option], which means some users [depending on which Win32 OS they are using] will have to be connected to the internet and keep downloading other files from MS, and only after that install IE, which defeats the purpose of a complete offline installation.

If u want to install IE online, and keep d/l-ing files from MS, u can always select the Setup [480 KB] option @:

http://www.mdgx.com/toy.htm#IEX

Like I said before, I'm doing this for quite a while, and by using Google "God" and with the invaluable help of a few great online friends, I managed to find some of the most useful, and weed out not so useful stuff.

Of course there are more than 10 files if u include the requirements for some of these patches and the various MSXML 2.xx, 3.xx + 4.xx patches.

All links to *.EXE + *.MSI patches are in BLUE.

BTW: 9x means all Windows builds from 95 1st retail all the way up to 98 SE.

Where 98 SE is not specified, and says only 98, it means all Windows 98 builds including 98 SE. More details here:

http://www.mdgx.com/win.htm

and here:

http://www.mdgx.com/ver.htm

For more term explanations + abbreviations, please see my glossary page:

http://www.mdgx.com/glossary.htm

All this may seem complicated at 1st glance, but remember that MS made it this way, and I [and all others who do this] have a hard time finding all these links, especially since MS started to post security patches every month.

I'm also trying to make all this "patching" process as simple as it can be, but because each file must have a web page with explanations, FAQ, bugs, fixes, etc, some patches require other patches pre-installed, and some newer patches override older ones, it's never easy.

It would be nice if MS would have provided service packs for IE, OE, WMP, DirectX, etc, but because they haven't and they never will, there will always be people like me who take time to sort them out for people like you.

Enjoy.

Hope this helps.

um, sorry prathapml. Disagree with the part that Opera has almost no security problems. The thing is that ALL web browsers whether it is Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, Mozilla or Firefox are prone to security problems. When security flaws for Mozilla, Firefox and Opera browsers are found the makers of these browsers offer patches or newer releases to fix them.

AND it is always imperative to use the latest version of Opera, Mozilla or whatever non-IE browser being used. I know the version of Opera I'm testing has a feature of checking for newer releases of Opera that are available.

Ha! It's not so easy:

you should know which files do you need and add to this url, for example:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6...-US/IEMIL_1.CAB

That's the example of downloading the first IE6 SP1 setup file for Windows ME.

If you want to download the corresponding setup file for Win98 go here:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6...-US/IE_S1.CAB

Open the ie6setup.exe file in Winzip, extract the iesetup.cif file and view the iesetup.cif file in Notepad to see what setup files you need for your version of Windows.

The only good reason to use IE is if your third party program requires it. The other advantage is that IE loads much faster than the latest non-IE browsers on slow computers. Other than these two reasons, dump IE if you can & if you find no use for it.

First of all thanks for the blessing (Matt 5: 10-12; Luke 6:6:22-23)

Like I said before, I'm doing this for quite a while, and by using Google "God" and with the invaluable help of a few great online friends, I managed to find some of the most useful, and weed out not so useful stuff.

Second, thanks for clearing up this matter with the highlighted areas. Maybe you could post this as a sticky and continue to add blue to the updates as they come in since you have gone to this trouble in coming up with this table.

Third, mabye you should consider posting tucows for your full installer. I have found out to be true from previous advice is that European servers are more reliable and up to date. http://tucows.iinet.com.au. Actually these guys have a variety of good windows files very handy.

ALright somewhere in this post i got lost ....... If i download the 'Full' IE6SP1 ( the 80mb download) is that all the updates and fixes in one ? because usually you have to sign on to the net and do a windows update get IE6SP! , reboot then go back and get the updates (not quite sure how many there is ) ........ does this already have them all ? i am tring to follow the installation for the unoffical service pack and so on

bascially i just wanna do it right .......

P.S. i use firefox 99.9% of the time but i still wanna be up to date .... is the 80mb IE6SP1 enough ?

bascially i dont wanna have to install IE6SP1 thru the internet i just want to burn the file to disk and install it from there and i wanna know that i have the updates

Sounds familiar. There is the IE SP 1 and then there are separate updates for the IE SP 1. It sounds like there is another update next month. I asked if the IE SP1 was necessary for the Unofficial Win 98SE Service Pack if I wasn't even on the internet and it appears (from what I understand) it does. I would say that every time the UWSP gets updaed you will have to update the IESP. . . . don't quote me but that appears to be my conclusion. I would say as soon as MS stops supporting WIN98SE you won't have to update anymore.

Thanks Shamgar i kinda got that impression also but wasnt sure of the OVERALL concensus was ...... i guess that the 80mb IE6 SP1 that i found here in one of the posts is EVERY UPDATE as of now then

i dont think it matters about later updates because as i said i use Firefox :thumbup

I think it's all stupid. To install latest IE you need cumulative update (3MB) and... nothing more! With some hacking that's enough even with IE5 installed.

um, sorry prathapml.  Disagree with the part that Opera has almost no security problems. 

AND it is always imperative to use the latest version of Opera, Mozilla or whatever non-IE browser being used.

I still standby my earlier statement that Opera has almost no security problems. It has very few of them (a micro percentage of the proportions IE/moz get), and even then you suffer nothing at all. It has none of the really threatening flaws/problems found in other browsers, and where it does have a problem, you are still fine even if you don't update it because the problem is not going to negatively affect anything.

Opera has an auto-check for updates facility, and this is only for the sake of giving you more features with new updates. NEVER do you find opera compromise your security, and never does it leave your OS exposed. But still it is so beautiful that you don't suffer lack of features just because of giving priority to security. At the most, some sites (hardly 1%) are incompatible with opera because they were designed specifically for IE - I always avoid such sites that don't have respect for standards.

This has been discussed here before:

1. Full IE 6.0 SP1 does install the full browser + all "accesories" [like language packs, WMP, Flash etc] on all Win32 OSes [except XP + 2003 which install newer builds] but think about it for a moment:

MS released it way back in August 1992, it does NOT contain ANY patches/fixes/updates, and to my knowledge, since 2002 they have never released ANY service packs, update rollups or whatever u want to call them.

So in order to install all current MS IE 6.0 SP1 patches you need to install them either from a web site like mine, by hand, file by file:

http://www.mdgx.com/ietoy.htm

or you can go to windowsupdate.com [and make sure your MS Windows OS has Windows Update + ActiveX enabled] to install all the ones MS has posted there, but they don't have or don't support all the ones I have listed @ URL above, so after allowing windowsupdate.com reboot your computer [so the newly installed patches can take effect] you still need to search the internet for sites like mine to install by hand the ones you don't have.

But the catch is if u installed only the ones @ windowsupdate.com it is difficult [especially for somebody who never did this and/or is just learning about his/her computer] and time consuming to hunt down all patches that remain to be installed by hand.

So in the long run it is less frustrating to install manually all patches from a web site like mine which posts all links to all current files. As I said before, there are roughly ~ 10 files you need to d/l + install. The catch here is your connection speed. 56K users may have to wait longer [actually a lot longer], but the files windowsupdate.com installs are identical with the ones from web sites like mine [because I link to MS servers], so it does not cut down on d/l time.

2. No matter which web browser u use [i prefer Firefox, but this applies also to Opera, Mozilla, Netscape, Maxthon etc] u MUST have ALL current MS security patches because MS IE is integrated into the Win32 OS, therefore your OS uses a bunch of IE files to access the internet one way or another, even if u never use IE to browse the net.

IMHO: the only reason to use IE is to access windowsupdate.com and eventually d/l files from MS web site that require "Genuine MS Windows" [but u must run XP or 2003 for most], because u must have ActiveX enabled for this to work. And don't get me started on how insecure ActiveX is. ;)

BTW: Maxthon is only a MS IE 6.xx [6.xx covers all MS IE 6 builds = 6.0 and 6.0 SP1] "skin", and therefore u must have MS IE 6 or newer already installed in order to use Maxthon and the likes: Avant, SlimBrowser, Crazy Browser, NeoPlanet etc. More like this:

http://www.mdgx.com/toy.htm#NET

And to save a little time: same as installing from windowsupdate.com u don't need to reboot after installing each patch, just install them all and select No/Cancel when it prompts you to reboot/restart Windows at the end of most patch installs when installing by hand.

But make sure u d/l only the most recent ones from a web site like mine, because some other sites may have not updated their web pages to delete older/duplicate patches.

And even if u have "stripped down" your OS by removing most IE files by the use of IEradicate or 98lite or Windows 98 on CD or Minimal Windows or Nano98 [all linked here: http://www.mdgx.com/newtip98.htm#98L and here: http://www.mdgx.com/toy.htm#FIX ], there still are [very few] IE files without which your OS canNOT function. And those few files need to have their respective patches installed to make sure your computer is as safe as possible.

The only case u don't need IE nor its many patches is if u never access the internet, but who can resist the "temptation"? :D Or switch to MAC OS X or Linux.

But [there's always a "but"], as someone here said [i believe it was erpdude8], ALL browsers have or will soon have security flaws and will need patching, no matter the OS.

Conclusion:

Basically if u use a Win32 OS like 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP or 2003, u need to become familiar with MS patching process, to keep up with all the fixes they keep posting roughly once a month.

Hope this helps.

Exactly MDGx. Eventually hackers will find out how Opera works and find ways to exploit its security flaws, prathapml. Using ANY web browser (whether it's Opera, Mozilla or Firefox) that is several years old is NEVER a good idea as web standards are changing almost constantly and it's best to use the latest releases of web browsers possible.

I don't mind if I have to update the Opera web browser once every year. Anyway the browser download is relatively small; I download the Opera browser w/out Java.

heck, I can have Opera, Mozilla and Firefox ALL installed on my machines and they can all co-exist just fine.

Shamgar, the following sites to get full install of IE6 SP1 DO NOT WORK:

(outdated or bad links that I have recently tested):

http://helpdesk.uvic.ca/how-to/support/win...XPL/ie60sp1.exe

http://ftp.gentoo.skynet.be/pub/ftp.micros...sp1/ie60sp1.exe

http://smokeping.planetmirror.com/pub/www/...sp1/ie60sp1.exe

http://download.au.kde.org/pub/www/browser...sp1/ie60sp1.exe

AVOID using any of these sites as you will get a 404 Not Found error message.

The rest of the links you mentioned work as expected.

Many thanks for your appreciation, and glad I could help.

2. I've only come up with the blue URL thingy here at this forum for you to understand better how this works; view it if u wish as a customized step-by-step tutorial. Now that you've learned what all this means, I hope u will be able to "decipher" the links @ my web site [and others'] easier. All u need to do is look for the links that pertain to the particular OS you're interested in [example: 98 or 98 SE = see my post above for complete details on how to read Win32 OS versions/builds/releases].

Also, if you recall from my IE patches page [ http://www.mdgx.com/ietoy.htm ] and most of my other web pages, all URLs are in blue, because I try to not change the default unclicked link color which is built into most browsers, to make it easier for all readers.

About Tucows [main server is located in the US: http://www.tucows.com/ ]:

this is a trademarked web site, and if u read their copyright/license/usage pages, u would notice they don't allow "deep" [direct] linking to their files. As webmaster I must take this in account when I post links to files and respect everybody's copyrights, same as I expect everybody else to respect mine.

3. I've also noticed [thank u erpdude8] that some of the links u point to are "404" [invalid]. Part of my job as webmaster [my site has currently > 130 pages] is to test all links before posting them, to avoid spending more time afterwards with corrections/updates.

But I found that 1 of the links u discovered is the fastest and most reliable from my location [sW USA], so I've changed all ie60sp1.exe links to point to it [thank u for your time + effort]:

http://downloads.planetmirror.com/pub/micr...sp1/ie60sp1.exe

About European servers being more up to date:

that's true only for the particular servers u are referring to, I would not generalize.

All depends on how often the webmaster(s) update their links/info/etc. I know commercial [for profit] web sites tend to be more up to date, because they depend on their customers to make money. :)

BTW: my site is non-profit, adverts free.

I know lots of US servers that are more up to date than most: a good example is MajorGeeks [to my knowledge also non profit, all their adverts barely make up for their maintenance costs + fees]:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/

Hint: Australian [.au] servers tend to be slow at times [depending on internet traffic] for US users. So do Taiwanese [.tw] servers.

To check the reliability of a particular server:

Hope this helps, and thanks for your help.

heck, I can have Opera, Mozilla and Firefox ALL installed on my machines and they can all co-exist just fine.

I have those 3 non-IE browsers installed as long as they are up to date.

I checked the Opera 'changelogs' page:

http://www.opera.com/docs/changelogs/?platform=windows

on the changes made to Opera web browsers. newer releases not only fix security bugs but also fix other oddities like memory leaks, javascript problems, UI [user interface] enhancements & other non-security related bugs and adds more stability.

Anyone using less than Opera 7.0 is considered to be doing a VERY POOR job updating their Opera browser. Best to use Opera 7.54 with U2 (update 2) installed:

Someone mentioned earlier about getting the IE6 SP1 full browser download at the Green Apple site. Avoid getting it from the greenapple.com site. It's not the same size as the ones posted at the Planetmirror.com and other sites. And when downloading the full IE web browser download use third party download managers to start, pause AND resume downloads.

Yeah, I mentioned it. If you read the download information you will see that only Win98/Me/2000/XP are in the file. That would explain why it is smaller.
