This issue has occured before and I have no idea what it is or how to fix it. I am running IE6 on XP SP2. Sometimes, I get messages telling me that my version of IE is less than 5.0? I have checked and double checked and IE says it is version 6... I have had this PC since Oct. 2003 and I wonder if there is another older version lurking somewhere? In example, I attempted to download a free tool on McAfee tonight and this is the message I received...

"To download and install McAfee software, your computer must be running Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later. To upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer, visit the Microsoft Web site at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads."

Any ideas?

What does your add/remove programs tell you? To stop that problem, you could just download the new Internet Explorer 7.0.
