"App Ver: 6.0.2900.5512"

Well, for starters, IE 6 is coming up on 10 years on August 27 and is downright ancient.

If you have mission-critical apps that require IE6, then at least download Firefox 4 or Google Chrome

If not, then download and install either

Internet Explorer 7


Internet Explorer 8

iMac G5 1.8GHz "Hero" PowerPC
2 x 1GB DDR PC3200 SDRAM

Thank you for your response......It's interesting you would suggest that because I checked my system and I do have Windows IE7, Verson 7.0.5730.11 with a Cipher Strength of 128-bit; which from the archieved system information was listed as Verson 5.1.2600 with the Service Pack 3, Build 2600. Earlier this morning (EST), I did successfully download IE8-Windows XP-x86-enu.exe, Application, 16,1MB. While it changed Internet Explorer, I'm still getting this same error message.

So, Your response started me thinking that I know that sometimes you must erase the old verson for the new one to work or in this case to maybe stop getting the error message, but I do not know how to access the old verson in order to erase it.

Hummmmm! Can you help me access the downloaded programs in order to erase it the 6.0 verson ... please remember that the "Windows Task Manager" is my only access to anything on my computer... I'm kinda' limping along here.... But, still trying to fix it! Again, thank you for your help!
