|You have made this topic in the Windows XP forum, yet you have Windows 7 listed below your user name. |
If you're having this problem in Windows 7, you should have made this topic in the Windows 7 forum, and your problem is unusual.
If the computer you're having this problem on has XP on it, all versions of XP come with Internet Explorer 6.
However, IE 6 no longer works properly with many web pages on the internet.
You can find out which version of IE your computer has by clicking on Help at near the the top of the IE screen, then clicking on About Internet Explorer.
If you don't see Help at the top of the screen, RIGHT click on a blank place in the bars at the top of the screen and select Menu Bar.
If you see Internet Explorer 6, your problem is NOT unusual - you must install a newer version of IE, or use the latest version of another internet browser program, such as Firefox.
Install IE 8 if you want to use IE.
You should install IE 8 even if you don't want to use IE.
There are some things that can only be done by using IE - e.g. using the Windows Update web page on the Microsoft web site.
If you see Internet Explorer 7, it was never supported by all web pages. Un-install it in Control Panel - Classic view - Add/Remove Programs, then install IE 8.
You can't install any IE version higher than IE 8 in XP.
