Hope someone can help. I've got an old Windows 98 SE with IE6. VERY SLOW. Trying to download fixes, Firefox, whatever, same message everytime in the Microsoft IE dialog pop up, ie. (Internet Explorer cannot download Firefox Setup 3.0.4.exe from mirror.cc.vt.edu. Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later.)
This is on ANY site I try to download from with the exception of Windows updates. I wanted to try uninstalling IE6 and reinstalling, or trying Firefox to see if that helps. I also can't view any "players" on websites, like youtube player. They are just blank on the screen.
I did try the IE6 repair from the Add/remove area. That would have been way too easy. No good. Any suggestions what else I can try. Hard to fix somethig when you can't download any fixes!
thanks so much.
