Automatic updates tells me to install kb 2360131, but it won't install. I am still running ie6 and oe6. Is this update needed on my machine? Thanks

Update kb2360131 is a cumulative security update for IE7 and IE8. You really should upgrade your IE to 8 if you can, there are alot of security holes in IE6 that were never fixed and you are leaving yourself open to someone installing something on your computer without your knowledge or consent.

Thank you for your reply. I suspected as much. Actually, I do not use IE as my default browser, I use firefox. The reason I haven't updated to ie8 is because I still use OE6 for email, and I don't know if I can change without also changing my email program. It does everything I need, and I don't look forward to learning a new program.

Hi -
Outlook Express 6 will still run the same under IE 7 or IE 8 -
I have been updating IE as i go and now have IE 8 with OE 6 email still running -
The same contacts are still there from years ago and some of my very old emails -
If you have problems I can always give you the link to re install Outlook Express if it changes -

Thank You -
